BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas — Temperatures are back on the climb as an upper-high builds back over Texas. The upper-high will stick around through the remainder of the week, allowing temperatures to climb back above average. Temperatures will range from the mid to upper-90s over the next few days. Humidity will also increase, allowing heat indices to climb into the 100s. Make sure you're staying hydrated.
During the hot temperatures, it is important to protect those pets. With temperatures in the 90s, the pets need proper shelter and plenty of water to stay cool. When you are walking your pets, make sure you walk the on cool surfaces, such as grass. Pavement heats up quickly with air temperatures in the 90s.
A slight pattern change will take shape this weekend as a cold front sneaks into northern Texas. This cold front will create an uptick in rain chances, which will help shave a few degrees off of the high temperatures over the weekend. There are questions as to how far south the front moves as it begins to lose upper-level support. This will be evaluated over the coming days. Despite the questions on how far south the front moves, an uptick in rain chances is likely by the weekend.
The rain chances will continue next week with temperatures falling into the upper-80s & lower-90s.
