Heat Index Values In the Triple Digits, Isolated Rain Chance
Temperatures to start out the day on Sunday will be in the lower 70s, but quickly heating up once again by the afternoon given plenty of sunshine and not a lot of cloud cover. One thing to keep an eye on will be the heat index as these values climb into the triple digits by the afternoon. Be sure to apply the sunscreen, take some breaks from the sun, and find a way to cool off throughout the day if you have outdoor plans.
The race to turn up the heat across the Brazos Valley is underway. By the time we reach Memorial Day, highs are expected to be in the mid-90s with heat index values in the triple digits. Those temperatures will just keep on rising to the upper 90s on Tuesday and Wednesday, and we will see if that 100° mark is within our reach those days. Otherwise, highs in the mid-90s will remain with us through the end of next week and becoming breezy by the time we hit Thursday and Friday.
