More August heat as we wrap up the month! Unlike yesterday, we feel a little better about a few of us getting a quick cooldown before the day is done. It won’t be for everybody, but any time afternoon noon, some pop-up showers and a couple storms look likely to pepper the PinPoint Radar through about sunset. We look to wake up and do it again into our Wednesday, then things look drier (and just as hot) as we finish the week and head to the first Friday of September.

Dry trend looks to continue right into the holiday weekend. From Friday football, through Aggie Gameday, and even into Labor Day afternoon grilling, the chance for rain looks slim at best. A stray shower or storm is possible Monday, but a small influx of moisture out of the Gulf might provide a chance for afternoon rain to return toward the end of the 10 day stretch, dropping expected highs back to the more seasonable low-to-mid 90s.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance for rain and thunderstorms. High: 98. Wind: SSW 0-5 mph.

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 78. Wind: S 0-5 mph.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance for rain and thunderstorms. High: 97. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 77. Wind: S 0-5 mph.
