After a gorgeous start to your Friday, a dry heat is expected for your afternoon. This will be the case for today as well as Saturday. Drier air and plenty of sunshine will still allow us to top off in the mid 90s by the afternoons, but with the lower humidity values in place, the mid 90s will feel like the mid 90s instead of the triple digits!

This drier feel doesn’t last forever. On Sunday, a big slug of tropical moisture will creep in from the Gulf, bringing back daily scattered rain and storm chances for the better part of next week. Overnight lows return to the low-to-mid 70s, ahead of daytime highs in the 80s thanks to the added cloud cover and rain-cooled air. This will be a messy feature swinging around high pressure in the Gulf of Mexico, leading to some uncertainty in rainfall totals, but generally higher amounts look to be found the farther south you travel. As of right now, tropical development is a low concern for the Brazos Valley, but we’ll keep eyes on that potential with this tropical moisture as moves northward. Chances for development are currently low, but something to monitor and gather a clearer picture on through the upcoming weekend.
