After yesterday’s widespread showers and thunderstorms, Today brings in more shot for an isolated midday- afternoon rain. the highest chance will be for the Eastern Brazos Valley, along and east of I-45. Scattered rain may be up and running with the sun before the chance for these storms to develop comes together between mid-morning and midday. Much of the area will remain dry, allowing afternoon highs to reach back to the mid-90s (heat index values around 100°).

High pressure builds in as we step into the weekend. That shuts down the rain chance and turns up the afternoon temperatures to the high 90s, although it will feel much hotter. heat index values are expected to reach 105°+ with no significant chance of rain to cool you down for your weekend plans. As high pressure has a hold on the Brazos Valley thermometers will read closer or right up to the century mark early-to-mid next week.

Thursday: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance for rain and storms, mainly east. High: 95. Wind: S 5-15 mph, gusting 20 mph.

Thursday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 78. Wind: SE 5-15 mph.

Friday: Partly cloudy. High: 97. Wind: SSE 5-15 mph.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 77. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.
