OCTOBER 18th, 2017 -- A southerly wind returned to the Brazos Valley Wednesday. Added moisture over the next few days means a chance at scattered rain and thunderstorms through part of the weekend.
While Thursday is expected to start off cool -- it is not going to be quite as crisp / chilly as the past few mornings. A bit of added moisture means that patchy fog is likely across parts of the Brazos Valley. Enough to slow a few of us down a bit, but should not be enough to cause major traffic issues.
Filtered sunlight Thursday as high clouds stream overhead. As that moisture builds, overcast skies are expected to take over Thursday afternoon. A good surge of Gulf moisture is anticipated by Friday -- which could kick on the first chance of rain for the Brazos Valley.
Afternoon rain & rumbles of thunder are possible Friday and Saturday. Some get in on a quick downpour, others could stay dry. By Sunday morning a line of rain & thunderstorms may usher in cooler / drier air ahead of our next cold front. While this will be the exception rather than the rule, a few stronger storms could bring thunder, lightning, heavy rain, and gusty winds in excess of 40mph+.
