After Monday night’s storms kicked off a ‘cooler’ day for the Brazos Valley Tuesday, the relief from the heat will be short-lived as we march into the middle of the work week. The front retreats to the north as a warm front tonight, potentially bringing a quick/stray shower to portions of the Brazos Valley. Thermometers reach for the mid 90s Wednesday afternoon (with heat index values in the triple digits) after starting off the morning in the mid 70s. As winds turn back in from the southeast, moisture in place combined with daytime heating could spark a quick shower/rumble or two before the day is over, but any activity found will likely be isolated in nature.

As high pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere moves in, the hot and muggy conditions stick with us through the end of the week. Mornings start off in the humid upper 70s, followed by afternoon highs in the mid 90s with feels-like temperatures in the triple digits. With ample moisture in place, a stray shower can’t completely be ruled out during the peak heating times of the day through the first half of the weekend. As high pressure weakens thanks to an approaching low pressure system, disturbances moving through will bring back a daily scattered rain and storm chance as early as Sunday, lasting through the better part of next week.

Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy. Low: 75. Wind: SE 0-5 mph.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with an isolated afternoon rain chance. High: 94. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.

Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 77. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Partly cloudy with an isolated afternoon rain chance. High: 96. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
