Rain & thunderstorms expected Saturday evening

By  | 

DECEMBER 15th, 2017 -- A wet and potentially noisy Saturday evening is expected for the Brazos Valley as a round of rain & storms move through from west to east.

Saturday morning will be a cold and overcast one, but it's expected to be dry. Temperatures kick off the day in the upper 30s.

Morning plans will be rain free, and afternoon activities should generally remain in tact, too. A few light showers and drizzle will not be ruled out for the Central & Western Brazos Valley between noon and 3 p.m.

Evening Christmas parties? Getting out for some holiday shopping? Plan on rain.

Rain and a few thunderstorms are expected to arrive from the west after 6 p.m. The bulk of this activity moves through the Brazos Valley between 7-8 p.m. and 1-2 a.m.

While the overall severe weather threat is low, a few strong to briefly severe thunderstorms will need to be monitored. Heavy rain, lightning, gusty winds and small hail cannot be ruled out in any hefty storms that manage to get going.

Rain clears to the east well before sunrise Sunday. 1/2" to 1" of rain should greet most checking the rain gauge first thing in the morning.
