Another hot & humid day Wednesday as we monitor the Gulf
After rain and storms moved through portions of the Brazos Valley Tuesday night, calmer conditions move in through the overnight. Plenty of sunshine early in the day Wednesday will help temperatures rebound into the mid-to-upper 90s by the afternoon hours, with feels-like temperatures in the triple digits expected once again. An isolated downpour/thunderstorm can’t completely be ruled out Wednesday afternoon, but anything found will be isolated in nature (~20% chance). The rain chance falls of through the second half of the work week as temperatures continue to sit in the mid 90s into the upcoming weekend.
Speaking of the weekend -- the Gulf of Mexico continues to be monitored very closely as the latest from the National Hurricane Center now puts a high chance of tropical development there over the next five days. With a tropical depression expected by late week, where the center of the system develops will be very important. With upper level winds pushing from southwest to northeast, the greatest impacts -- strong wind and heavy rain -- are expected around and east of that center. Anybody west would likely find little-to-no impacts thanks to sinking air that would likely make for some hot temperatures by the afternoons. For now, concerns will remain low for the Brazos Valley and southeast Texas with the heaviest rain currently forecast for Louisiana over the Father’s Day Weekend. Still -- there are unknowns in the next few days that will need a watchful eye & potentially could change the forecast locally, so keep checking back regularly!
