Stuffy Humidity, Highs Near 100°
Not much to change the status quo around here as we close out the week and head into weekend plans. Mid / upper 70° mornings turn into afternoons that top off around 98° - 100°. Factor in the muggy gulf air and a lack of a breeze, heat index (feels like) temperatures should check in anywhere between 104° and 110° these next few days.
A weak cold front is what we will be monitoring for the start of the upcoming week. Still some question if this can fully push through the Brazos Valley Monday night through Tuesday morning. If it pushes through, rain chance will be brief before clearing out and pushing drier air (lower humidity) in by Wednesday. If the front hangs up in the Brazos Valley, temperatures likely remain hot & stuffy air lingers, but a better chance for rain and thunderstorms may be in the works. Details to work out, but either way there is the hope for a slight bit of relief around here.
