Tropical disturbance making landfall in South Texas. Potential for a couple of showers to make their way into the Brazos Valley.
South Texas woke up to a tropical disturbance pushing onto the coast this morning, providing the potential for six inches of rain to fall. Although the low-pressure system has not developed into a tropical depression or a named system, it brings much-needed rain to a drought-filled region. A couple of showers from the disturbance’s counter-clockwise rotation could be slung into the southern counties of the Brazos Valley. But the same ol’ summertime story still exists... (say it with me!) most will stay dry, as the showers are looking to be incredibly isolated.
As we approach the work week, high pressure settles back in over Texas. Temperatures are expected to climb back up to 103-104°. With all of the moisture in the air from the tropical disturbance, feels-like temperatures are expected to climb even higher. There is a possibility that we see heat advisories issued Tuesday and Wednesday. Relief follows on Thursday. A weak front travels into the Brazos Valley, and should both provide some widespread rain and lower temperatures into the upper 90s.
Sunday: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for rain. High: 99°. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.

Monday: Mostly sunny. High: 100°. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.
