Friday brings a healthy mix of sun and clouds and another chance for scattered (mainly) afternoon and early evening rain. An area of low pressure moving out of the Gulf into South Texas will try and fling that scattered wet weather as far north as our backyard. Any Friday evening plans / Friday night football games may have an isolated downpour that slows the beginning, but any activity should generally come to an end with the loss of daytime heat.

Tropical Storm Ida - which will likely become Hurricane Ida as early as tonight - continues to move northward toward Cuba Friday morning. After landfall there, the storm will move into the Gulf of Mexico and strengthen ahead of landfall late this weekend. There is growing confidence and consistency that this storm will NOT affect the Brazos Valley, or even the state of Texas. On that note, on the western side of the system, it’ll get a bit toasty for a couple days next week before we level things off and get back to the seasonable mid 90s for the first few days of September.

Friday: Partly cloudy with a 40% chance for rain and thunderstorms. High: 93. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain and an isolated storm before midnight. Low: 75. Wind: Calm.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a 40% chance for rain and thunderstorms. High: 93. Wind: E 5-15 mph.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 76. Wind: E 0-5 mph.
