Brazos Valley Burn Bans: The following counties are under a Burn Ban: Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Houston, Lee, Leon, Madison, Milam, Robertson, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker, Washington
Last week it was all about the rain. This week it is all about the seasonable heat across the Brazos Valley. Our 90° string of days will continue -- but we'll warm a bit more in the upcoming days.
Hot? Sure. But It Has Been Seasonable
Mother Nature broke a 240 day streak of sub-90° heat last Friday (May 30th).
Since then, we've had our share of that temperature starting with a nine -- with ample more days to come.
That said, we've reached 91° Wednesday afternoon, following 90° Monday and Tuesday.
91° is also the warmest temperature we've recorded in Bryan / College Station -- officially -- this year.
That, however, is about to change...
High Pressure Nestles In
High pressure has been the controlling factor in our forecast this week. The quiet, humid, hot weather we've had on hand makes that no secret.
A slight change in the works -- Thursday that high's center will be a bit closer to the Brazos Valley.
That should be enough to notch temperatures up a few degrees. In fact, with a forecast high of 93° for Thursday, that would then take over for the hottest day of the year (thus far).
Temperatures are expected to flounder around the 91° to 93° mark for the next seven days.
Grab a glass of Lemonade and settle in -- here we go into the summertime weather.
