Hotter Days: Caution W/Fireworks, String of 100°+ Days Ahead!
(07/02/2022) Rainfall Total: —
Current Burn Bans: Austin, Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Houston, Lee, Leon, Madison, Milam, Montgomery, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker, & Waller Counties!
Current Watches, Warnings, & Advisories: None!
A very hot, dry weather pattern is taking over for the foreseeable future across much of the Lone Star State. A ridge of high pressure is ballooning over the Central United States, cutting of any rain chances, bringing ample sunshine, and heating up temperatures. Last possible rain chance ending late Saturday before a dry spell takes over the Brazos Valley. Afternoon highs top off in the upper 90s to near 100° Sunday & The Fourth Monday under sunny skies.
A majority of the Brazos Valley remains under areawide burn bans ahead of Independence Day. While some counties have not issued any fireworks bans (including Madison Co.), it is best to limit any outdoor fireworks and find other ways to celebrate the Fourth. Any sort of open flame or spark will ignite and spread grassfires quickly due to dry vegetation and worsening drought conditions. Lately, we’ve been seeing grassfires pop up and spread quickly across the region, so use caution outdoors. Regardless, be sure to follow all local guidelines pertaining to burn and fireworks bans this weekend, as we try to get through the holiday weekend safely.
