Tonight: Clear skies. Low 75. E winds at 5 mph.

Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Low 76. S winds at 10-15 mph.

Forecast Discussion: We finally broke the century mark here in Bryan/College Station. And it could be even warmer tomorrow with drier air aloft moving into the area. But of course, the big story is Tropical Storm Dolly. The latest from the National Hurricane Center states that Dolly is moving west-northwest at 18 mph. Maximum substained winds are at 50 mph with higher gusts. The general consensus is that Dolly will become a hurricane before making landfall on the Mexico/Texas coast on Wednesday and Thursday. Some models even have Dolly making landfall around Port O’Connor and the Matagorda Bay, which could affect our weather in a big way.
