Current Burn Bans: None!
Current Watches, Warnings, & Advisories: None!
 
Forecast Discussion:
Our “Dash-&-Splash” rain chance has left the Brazos Valley, leaving high pressure in control. In return, this high pressure system builds over the Southern U.S., providing a drier, hotter forecast by the weekend, and into next week. First, Thursday & Friday bring a “taste” of the hotter temperatures, as the reach the middle to upper 90’s. Heat indices range 103°-107° both afternoons. By Saturday afternoon, we’re expecting to break a 300+ Day streak of no 100° weather.
 
By records, the middle of July brings the average first 100° degree day for the Brazos Valley, so this isn’t an uncommon forecast going forward, however… the heat will be a bit stronger than usual. Saturday & Sunday feature afternoon highs near/at 100° before Monday & Tuesday bring temperatures near 100°-104°. For the record, Monday’s record high in 103° set back in 2013, so we’ll mostly likely tie/slightly break this record. Factoring in humidity, we’ll see heat indices (feel-like temps) ranging 110°-112° (shaded). Expect heat advisories likely to be issued by late weekend into early week of next week for the Brazos Valley.
 
5-Day Weather Outlook:
Thursday: High 94. Low 75. Cloudy-Clearing, Warming.
Friday: High 96. Low 75. Partly Cloudy – Clearing.
Saturday: High 98. Low 75. Mostly Sunny, Near 100°.
Sunday: High 100. Low 75. Mostly Sunny, Hottest.
Monday: High 100. Low 76. Mostly Sunny, Hottest.
