After a few isolated showers/rumbles managed to pop up Thursday afternoon, quiet conditions and mostly clear skies are back in place late Thursday night. This will lead in more sunshine heading into the last day of the work week, with thermometers reaching for the mid 90s by the afternoon after starting off in the mid 70s.

Potential Tropical Cyclone Three is still being closely monitored as it tracks north through the Gulf of Mexico. As of the Thursday night update from the National Hurricane Center, the system is still expected to strengthen into a tropical depression by Friday morning, and potentially make landfall along the Central Louisiana coastline as Tropical Storm Claudette by late Friday/early Saturday. The center of circulation and the larger impacts from this area of low pressure (heavy rain, strong winds) look to stay east of the Brazos Valley. However, a few tropical downpours (especially the farther east you travel locally) will be possible both Saturday and Sunday afternoons -- but is not expected to be a washout by any means. Just something to keep an eye on as we make plans for dad through the upcoming weekend!

Friday: Mostly sunny with a 10% chance for an isolated shower. High: 95. Wind: E 5-10 mph.

Friday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 74. Wind: E 0-5 mph.

Saturday: Partly cloudy with an isolated chance for tropical downpours. High: 94. Wind: ENE 5-10 mph.

Saturday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 76. Wind: S 0-5 mph.
