An unseasonable cold front is expected to bring in some slightly drier air back to the Brazos Valley this weekend and turn winds back out of the north Saturday. It keeps the chance for rain and storms alive through the overnight hours Friday into Saturday and may keep a quick shower possible Saturday afternoon. Overall the rain potential the first few days of August is minimal.

What most will be dealing with is the heat and return of humidity this week. The weekend keeps some lower dew points around which will help keep the heat index closer to the actual air temperature. It will still be warm, in fact close to where we should be this time of year, in the mid and upper 90s. Saturday will likely be the cooler day of the two with highs expected to top off in the mid 90s thanks to a little more cloud cover and a better chance for rain. By Sunday, the rain chance goes down significantly and we work in a bit more sunshine throughout the day bumping highs back into the upper 90s with heat index values both days near 100.

Friday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 50% chance for rain and thunderstorms. Low: 75. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for an isolated shower or storm. High: 95. Wind: NE 5-10 mph.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 75. Wind: Variable 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly sunny with a 10% chance for isolated showers. High: 98. Wind: E 5-10 mph.
