Rain down, not out during a seasonably hot Brazos Valley 4th of July

By  | 

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - Just about as standard of a 4th of July expected here in the Brazos Valley. While the rain chance is significantly lower than it has been, a few spots of rain cannot be ruled out early.

The past 48 hours have been consumed by rich, deep moisture in the Brazos Valley supplying tropical downpours each afternoon. That moisture will linger in our atmosphere through Thursday morning before being shoved out by drier mid-level air.

Morning activities for Independence Day? A few showers to a couple thunderstorms cannot be ruled out before the noon hour. The highest potential for wet weather could be speckled across Milam, Robertson, and Houston Counties around midday. As the drier air settles in, the rain chance comes down heading into afternoon and evening festivities.

One more thing about that dry air -- it will also be dusty air. The next plume of Saharan Dust is sliding into the Brazos Valley sky. Not the biggest concentration, but a milky haze and a brilliant sunset will be noticeable you are out and about for 4th of July events.

More details for the holiday are in included in the video above.
