A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH FOR MILAM AND ROBERTSON COUNTIES UNTIL MIDNIGHT......
Update: A complex of thunderstorms over northeast Texas is moving south closer to the Brazos Valley. These storms have the potential to generate winds over 60mph, heavy rain, frequent lightning, and small hail too. As far as our chance of rain, it will be a waiting game tonight. Keep in mind that the weather has the potential to go down hill quickly, but just make sure to keep up with our updates.
It took a while, but now the heat will be so oppressive that our first Heat Advisories have been issued for our northern counties. This is due to an area of high pressure in the upper levels that will build into Texas and create an environment conducive for high heat. Expect temperatures during peak heating of the afternoon to reach the upper 90s to 100°. Then when you factor in the humidity levels, Heat Index values (or "feels like" temperatures) could range up towards 110°. Therefore we need to keep heat safety a top priority.
Best thing to do is to stay inside with the A/C blowing. However, if you will be outdoors, make sure to keep a cold beverage nearby and slap on plenty of sunscreen as the sun will be out and about the rest of the week and into the weekend.
Besides the heat, the next chance of any rainfall could come in the middle of next week which in turn, should scale back the heat.
Try to stay cool, and stay safe.
