Scattered to numerous areas of rain and thunderstorms are expected to pop up at a 40-50% coverage by the mid-afternoon to early evening hours. Copy and paste that into Friday as well -- this time with a higher moisture content that could yield some healthy downpours at times. No day through Sunday is a washout, but lighting and heavy rain may have outdoor events sent inside for 30-45minutes at a time.

On to early next week: there are way more questions in the forecast than answers at this moment. A tropical wave is becoming more organized in the Caribbean, moving north-northwest and pointed at the Gulf of Mexico. What we know is that a tropical system develops ahead or by the weekend. That system is expected to strengthen in the Gulf this weekend to very early next week. What we do not know at this time is where exactly it heads, how strong it will get, or where the impacts will fall. For now, the National Hurricane Center as mentioned that residents from Texas to Louisiana should be on the lookout for possible tropical weather sometime between late weekend and early week (likely landfall around Monday late or Tuesday). Something to keep in mind, but not take to the bank for the Brazos Valley as of yet. Once this system forms in the next 24-48 hours, forecast data should get better and the picture should be clearer for where this next tropical concern is headed.
