On the toastier side as we begin afternoon plans, but a few more downpours could cool down a lucky few of us through the early evening. While severe weather is not expected, a quick gust of wind and cloud to ground lightning will be possible with the heaviest storms. Otherwise, we’ll likely reach the 90s for the first time this week, with heat index easing right back into the triple digits.

We will keep things dry until a weak “cold” front starts to put the squeeze on the Brazos Valley Friday. That will allow for tropical moisture to pool over the area and bring the chance for rain back into the picture to close out the workweek. With the front nudging into the area, the chance for wet weather gets a boost Saturday. We’ll go for more of the daytime round or two or three of showers and a couple storms. Not a washout - but a decent chance that rain could try to bog down your outdoor plans once or twice throughout the day. Sunday looks similar, with perhaps lower coverage, but a decent chance for storms in the afternoon. The plus - some of us don’t even touch 90 degrees and we likely keep that daytime storm chance free of any worries by fireworks time.
