FRIDAY: Scattered, Hit-or-Miss Rain
A mid-level area of low pressure is moving west through the Gulf of Mexico -- centered south of Louisiana Thursday evening. That rain maker is expected to sit off the Upper Texas Coast as Friday / this weekend. That area of disturbed weather is expected to fling an excess of tropical moisture into the area and bring up the chance for rain and thunderstorms.
While this is not expected to be a wash-out, scattered activity is expected to bring the possibility of brief, heavy rain, thunder, and lightning through the Brazos Valley Friday afternoon / evening (50%). Weekend plans? We'll keep that chance of rain and storms at a 30% chance -- with the Sunday chance favored a bit more. Otherwise, highs remain in the low 90s, but it will feel like a stuffy 100°+ each afternoon.
Thursday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain and thunderstorms. Low: 75. Wind: ESE 5 mph.
Friday: Mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of rain and thunderstorms. High: 90. Wind: ESE 5-10 mph.
Friday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain and thunderstorms before 10pm. Low: 74. Wind: E 5 mph.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain and thunderstorms. High: 92. Wind: ENE 5-10 mph.
