Not a weekend washout; rain & storms possible Friday through Sunday

By  | 

OCTOBER 19th, 2017 -- Rain and thunderstorms return to the forecast Friday through Sunday morning. Weekend plans come alongside an unsettled weather pattern before our next cold front arrives.

A surge of Gulf moisture will spend the overnight hours into Friday morning moving into the Brazos Valley. A few spotty, light showers will remain possible at times through the overnight hours.

Friday brings back the chance of passing rain and thunderstorms. A few storms could be on the strong side with heavy rain, lightning, and breezy-to-gusty winds. While not a complete wash out, the afternoon hours bring the best chance of rain.

Saturday should bring more activity to the area , however it looks more few and far between. The upper level support does not seem to favor widespread rainfall, but a few strong storms will once again not be ruled out.

Sunday is a split day. The next cold front to reach the Brazos Valley comes through during the morning hours. A line of rain and thunderstorms is expected along & ahead of that front between sunrise and lunchtime. Strong winds and heavy rainfall will be possible before that north wind turns in.

When it is all said and done -- 1" to 3" is not out of the idea of possible by the end of the weekend.

More details and a timeline on what to expect is included in the video above.
