Wednesday Rain Chance and Healthy Breeze
Most of the rain Tuesday hugged the Upper Texas Coast Tuesday, leaving just a few showers to spots of light rain locally. A quiet night on deck for the Brazos Valley before the atmosphere throws a last-ditch effort for rain our way ahead of a few drier days. If storms can fire up around sunrise just west of the Brazos Valley, scattered rain & a few rumbles of thunder may try to drift west to east across the area through early afternoon. For now, the odds are only around a 30% to 40% shot.
High pressure takes over to close out the week -- that leaves the rain chance near or right at flat. Highs are seasonable in the low-to-mid 90s Thursday and Friday. Some Saharan Dust in the atmosphere will add a hazy effect to our skyline. Weekend plans? Don't plan on a washout but know that afternoon showers and scattered thunderstorms are possible as a broad area of low pressure drifts west to east through Southeast Texas.
Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for rain and thunderstorms. Low: 73. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy with a 40% chance for rain and storms. Hazy. High: 91. Wind: SE 10-15 mph.
Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 72. Wind: SE 0-5 mph.
Thursday: Partly cloudy with a 10% chance of rain and thunderstorms. High: 93. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
