After strong summer storms shoved their way into the Brazos Valley Tuesday afternoon, another chance for similar activity arrives through the second half of the day Wednesday. The day starts off mostly quiet with less haze in the forecast ahead of temperatures climbing into the low 90s by the afternoon. As the sea breeze advances inland, that combined with daytime heating may spark more strong storms where lightning, pockets of heavy rainfall, and gusty winds will need to be monitored. Generally the farther south you travel, the better chance there is at tapping into some of the rain and storm activity, but whatever activity is found on PinPoint Radar looks to dissipate around/after sunset.

More of the same story in store Thursday ahead of another batch of tropical moisture that filters in to wrap up the work week. This should increase the coverage of rain and storms by Friday, where we’ll need to monitor for gusty winds and patches of heavy rainfall ahead of the weekend. After that, rain chances currently look a bit more isolated through the weekend, but a plume of Saharan Dust moving in will bring back hazy skies through at least Saturday where those with sensitive respiratory systems may need to limit outdoor activity for a bit.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance for afternoon and early evening rain / storms. High: 91. Wind: SE 5-15 mph.

Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 73. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance for late afternoon/early evening rain and storms. High: 91. Wind: SSE 5-15 mph.

Thursday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 75. Wind: S 10-15 mph.
