Typical July Returns Wednesday -- Changes Thursday / Friday
Scattered areas of rain, along a stalled, weak cold front, helped keep cloud cover in place and temperatures in the 80s for much of the Brazos Valley. Mostly sunny skies return to the Brazos Valley Wednesday -- with a few high clouds stretched overhead -- which should help afternoon highs rebound to the low / mid 90s.
While a stray shower or storm is possible tomorrow, the better bet for rain will be along and ahead our next "cold" front, scheduled to arrive Thursday night into Friday morning. With a soggy start to the day, and cloud cover lingering into the afternoon, highs are expected to only reach the mid / upper 80s to wrap up the work week.
Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy with a slight chance for showers early. Low 74. Winds NE becoming E 5-10 mph.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny with a 20% chance of afternoon rain and thunderstorms. High 96. Winds SSE 5-10 mph.
