Another hot and humid day for the Brazos Valley, with afternoon highs slated for the low-to-mid 90s, and heat index values above 100. The upper-level high pressure system that’s been the main driver of the calmer weather pattern that we’ve seen over the past few days will slowly slide westward into the early portions of the week. As this area of high pressure loosens its grip over the Brazos Valley, a daily, isolated chance for a few showers/pop-up storms will be possible as early as this afternoon (although general odds are low through sunset). Not everyone gets tagged by the rain each day, but there will at least be the chance to see rain roam some portions of the Brazos Valley by the afternoon hours through the upcoming week.

Something else to monitor into the early portions of the upcoming week: the Gulf of Mexico for potential tropical development. Details are still a bit fuzzy at this point since the area of low pressure in question hasn’t formed yet, but we should get a clearer picture on what impacts (if any) this potential system would have on our area over the next few days. If impacts are in the cards, we would be looking in the Fathers Day Weekend-to-just beyond time frame. Keep checking back on that outlook over the next few days!
