August heat and humidity goes on...
Another day, another run at 100 degrees. We'll do it all over again on Sunday, but the reintroduction of rain chances over the next 7 days will help to bring some hope for cooler days down the road. As it stands though, that hope for rain remains rather low Sunday-Tuesday. Beyond that though, dust off the umbrella, because you just might need it by the end of the week into next weekend.
For tonight, another muggy/mild night can be expected. We'll barely drop below 80° again and most of us will still feel like it's in the lower to middle 80s through sunrise. Heat indices shouldn't be quite as high Sunday through Tuesday, but cloud cover will remain at a premium. Highs top out in the mid to upper 90s through Wednesday. Monday's Solar Eclipse should bring some rather decent viewing weather in the Brazos Valley, but some passing clouds could briefly move in through lunchtime and stretch into the early afternoon.
Saturday Night: Clear to partly cloudy. Muggy/Mild. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.
Sunday: Mostly sunny with a 10% chance of rain. High: 99. Heat Index: 103° - 107°. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.

Solar Eclipse Monday: Partly to mostly sunny. Slightly cooler. High: 95. Heat Index: 100°-105°. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
