Drier air lives to see another day in the Brazos Valley! Another morning of 60s and even a few 50s in outlying areas is in the works early Saturday. The first half of the weekend will be spent much like the end to the work week Friday, with mostly clear skies and daytime highs in the low-to-mid 90s. A bit of haze on the horizon will be possible thanks to wildfire smoke that is passing through parts of Texas from wildfires out west. Air quality is forecasted to sit in the “moderate” category -- meaning those who are unusually sensitive may experience a few issues before the weekend is over.

Sunday is a transition day as moisture starts to creep back into the Brazos Valley. The day starts off in the upper 60s/low 70s, ahead of a bit more cloud cover building in throughout the day and a chance for a few showers and storms by Sunday night. This will signal additional changes for the upcoming week as a big slug of tropical moisture moves into Southeast Texas and will spark scattered rain and storm chances through at least the first half of next week. This moisture is associated with an area of low pressure that has been given a high chance for tropical development by the National Hurricane Center as it moves into the southern Gulf by Sunday / Monday. Still a lot of unknowns and fine-tuning to do with the system into the weekend, but regardless of development/it’s state when it moves closer to Texas, this looks to bring heavy rain and storms to parts of the Brazos Valley next week.
