Heat Continues, Better Shot at Needing The Umbrella Soon
Another day filled with a healthy mix of sun and clouds is on tap for the Brazos Valley. Last week of summer? Soak it up the next couple days - rain chances are on the increase starting as early as Wednesday. Until then, prepare for afternoons with highs near 100 and heat index getting just above 105.
Only a stray shower is possible today, then more scattered activity is possible after that. We'll be watching a weak cold front drift toward our area as early as Wednesday afternoon that could help develop some more afternoon precip, and that front is expected to linger at least near us into the weekend. We'll go for scattered coverage (30-40%) for now through Friday.
We'll be keeping an eye on the tropics for our weekend rain chance. We're getting a slightly better picture of what the remnants of Harvey will do, but will no better as the disturbance slides back into the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday. Until then, grab the umbrella starting Wednesday and keep checking back.
