Typical July Returns Wednesday -- Changes Thursday / Friday
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 later today, 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.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny with a 20% chance of afternoon rain and thunderstorms. High 96. Winds S 5-10 mph.
Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low 74. Winds S 5-15 mph.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance for afternoon showers or thunderstorms. High 94. Winds SSW 5-10 mph.
Thursday Night: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance for showers early. Low 74. Winds SSW 5-10 mph.
