The Brazos Valley is almost done with the intense second summer that has developed over the past week. Relief is on the way in the form of a cold front late Sunday night into Monday morning. The temperature will not change drastically as is the case with many winter and fall fronts, but the humidity will be expelled from the region. Dry, comfortable air will be present in the Brazos Valley over the next week. High temperatures should drop to the upper 80s by Thursday and Friday, and low temperatures will be in the low 60s. High pressure continues to inhibit any cloud formation, keeping the sky clear all week.

Tropical Storm Ian formed in the Atlantic last night, causing high alarm to the Eastern portions of the Gulf of Mexico. Many models indicate the storm to shift eastward once in the gulf, making landfall in Florida as a major hurricane. However, more recent data has suggested that the storm may shift more westward than initially expected. The system is expected to make landfall early next week and does not provide any threat to the Brazos Valley or Texas. The entirety of the National Weather Service is collecting extra data via weather balloon this afternoon to be input into Global Forecast Models to get the most updated and accurate forecast track possible.
