Just a few clusters of storms out there this evening -- looking like a go for your 4th of July evening plans.

Weekend? It could rain -- but likely won't. Heat start to build back up. Details are up:

Currently a quiet radar across the Brazos Valley -- 

PinPoint "Future Radar" still attempts to drift in a few scattered showers / isolated thunderstorms by 3pm. 

Pessimistic -- but we'll continue to monitor trends for those 4th of July plans.

PinPoint "Future Radar" for possible scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. 

Take the umbrella out the door -- just in case.

Still a good idea to snag that umbrella and take it with you today.

Can't promise everyone will see rain, but a weak cold front draped across the Brazos Valley should have widely scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms roaming the area.

Rain chance is for anytime after 10am. Runs through around sunset tonight (~8pm).

Below: HRRR "Future Radar" for 11am

Just a spot of rain here and there across the Southeastern Brazos Valley this evening -- a sign of things to come. Snag the umbrella and keep it with you for the next few days. Widely scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms will be possible Thursday and then again for the 4th of July Friday.  While it won't be a wash out, there could be times of passing downpours and strong storms with cloud to ground lightning and gusty winds. Storm activity is expected to come to an end just in time for fireworks shows across the Brazos Valley.

Same system steering Tropical Storm Arthur up the East Coast these next few days will also bring our rain chance up a touch heading into your 4th of July.

Latest details on rain chances and an early look into your holiday forecast are up:

Looking good for a night to get out and enjoy your 4th of July festivities. A few clusters of thunderstorms are drifting around out there -- we'll keep a slight chance for rain heading towards the hour for fireworks. Weekend brings heat, light winds, humidity, and a slim chance for rain. Next 7 days looks to bring pretty typical Summer / July weather to the Brazos Valley

Another round of scattered showers and isolated, strong thunderstorms is expected across the Brazos Valley this 4th of July Friday.

While it won't be a wash out for everyone, it looks to turn a few plans soggy.  Highest coverage is expected between 4pm and 6pm. 

Activity should start to fall apart as we near sunset. Thinking most / if not all should be clear for fireworks this evening.

HRRR "Future Radar" 1pm - 9pm.

Widely scattered pockets of rain and a few isolated, strong thunderstorms are expected this afternoon.

Not a wash out of the day -- but you may have to head indoors for about half an hour at at time.

This hot & muggy air mass could pop up a stray shower or two before sunset tonight -- 

Better bet for rain and isolated storms is on tap heading towards the long weekend ahead. A view into those rain chances & your Independence Day forecast is up:

A bit late today -- but better than never. Looking at another hot day on tap as we continue our march into July.  Less wind on hand for Wednesday, meaning you'll feel that muggy air a bit more.  Temperatures move to the mid 90s by afternoon -- heat index values have it feeling like the low 100s for a few hours during the afternoon. An isolated thunderstorm isn't out of the question by 3-7pm.  Better rain chance heading into Thursday as a weak cold front dangles around the neighborhood.  That could bring scattered pockets of soggy weather to your 4th of July as well.

Get out and catch the sunset this evening! There should be a hazy, orange glow in the sky thanks to a minor influx of African dust in the atmosphere.

July starts off hot & breezy -- winds come down but the rain chance slips up as we head through the rest of this week. Latest is up:
