The Brazos Valley has been blessed recently with several cool mornings in the 60s. This summer has been belligerently hot and dry, and waking up in the 60s has been a welcome addition to the weather pattern. Going forward, however, that glimpse of summer will be robbed of us. Gulf moisture is on the way, and we’ll get right back into the humidity pattern. Expect high temperatures to climb into the mid-90s again by the weekend, but will the moisture return, heat index values will climb back into the triple digits. I advise you to enjoy the cooler morning while you can... It might be a while before we see cooler temperatures again. We’re not due for the first true cold front of the month for another, say, month or two.

Rain chances exist again for this weekend. Currently, Friday hosts a slight 30% chance for rain. It won’t be for everyone, but after this secondary dry spell, the ground is thirsting for another drink. This weekend also has a chance for isolated showers on both Saturday and Sunday, sitting around 20% for now. We are also tracking the tropics, where tropical depression seven was recently designated. If it strengthens this evening, this storm will become Tropical Storm Fiona. Currently, this storm poses no threat to the Brazos Valley.

Thursday: Mostly sunny. High: 94. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
