Only Getting Hotter...
Drying up the forecast here in the Brazos Valley as high pressure takes over our weather pattern. We'll aim to hold on to an isolated, 20% chance for a stray shower to a rumble of thunder with the afternoon heat Friday & Saturday. Otherwise, the next 7 days feature hot highs and sunny skies.
High pressure blossoming from Mexico over Texas and being on the western side of a potential tropical system (pulling in drier, sinking air into the area), temperatures are forecast to surge to the mid-90s by the end of the weekend and upper 90s for early next week. Forecast highs come a few degrees shy of 100° Tuesday and Wednesday of next week -- starting Memorial Day Monday heat index values (what it feels like in the shade) may surpass 100° for the first time this year.
Thursday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 71. Wind: SSE 0-5 mph.
Friday: Mostly sunny with a 20% chance of afternoon rain / thunderstorms. High: 91. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.
Friday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 72. Wind: S 0-5 mph.
Saturday: Mostly sunny with a 20% chance of rain & thunderstorms. High: 93. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
