Forecast Discussion:

We’ll keep an added rain chance in the forecast through the weekend across the Brazos Valley, as a “tropical mess” digs westward along Coastal Texas. In turn, it’ll produce a scattered rain chance Saturday and an isolated rain chance Sunday. We’ll kick off Saturday morning in the middle 70s and an isolated storm chance before afternoon highs round up in the mid-90s Saturday afternoon and a scattered chance for showers, few summertime storms in the Brazos Valley. Storm activity should track south to north with the main concerns being heavy downpours, gusty winds, and occasional lightning. Rain totals manage 0.10″-0.50″ with an isolated 1.00″ possible (very isolated in nature). Of course, temps are “cooler” because of the cloudy skies and added rains.

An isolated storm chance remains in the forecast Sunday. Afternoon highs linger around the upper 90s early week and an isolated rain chance continues through each day next week. Overall, nothing too beneficial but maybe enough to break up the monotony from this excruciating heat outside.

5-Day Weather Outlook:

Saturday: High 97. Low 73. Rainy. 40% Chance/Rain.

Sunday: High 99. Low 74. Mostly Sunny. 20% Chance/Rain.

Texas Drought Monitor (08/04)!

DROUGHT INDEX: Latest Texas Drought Monitor has been released for the Lone Star State, showing deteriorating drought conditions across much of Texas.

Here, in the Brazos Valley, drought conditions continue to worsen and expand. In early Spring, the Brazos Valley picked up some beneficial rainfall that delayed these worsening conditions this summer, while the rest of the Lone Star State lacked that rainfall and started seeing drought conditions early on. Either way, these horrific drought conditions can be attributed to a lack of rainfall in recent months and well above-average temperatures this summer.

EXTREME DROUGHT‘ (D3 – Drought Stage) conditions now expand across half of the 16 counties in the Brazos Valley, mostly west of the Highway 6 Corridor and a small portion running through Brazos, Grimes, Madison, and Walker Counties and in Montgomery and San Jacinto Counties. ‘EXCEPTIONAL DROUGHT‘ (D4 – DROUGHT STAGE/HIGHEST ON SCALE) run through the Southwestern Brazos Valley, while everyone else has (at the least), ‘SEVERE DROUGHT‘ (D2 – Drought Stage) conditions.
