CENTRAL, Texas — A ridge of high pressure will start building in from the west Wednesday and slide over and east of Central Texas through the weekend. This ridge will promote hot and sunny weather, though few stray showers can't be ruled out near the Brazos Valley.
Rain chances do come back Monday as Tropical Storm Cristobal may approach the Upper-Texas Coast. The exact track will be very important as a more easterly turn towards Louisiana would mean drier and sunnier weather next Monday.
This of course will need to be monitored over the coming days. Rain may start to impact the Texas coast late Sunday into early Monday morning.
