Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible, across the Brazos Valley, Saturday afternoon and evening. Winds in excess of 40-60mph are the main concern, within the strongest activity. An isolated, brief tornado threat cannot be ruled out. Heavy rainfall between 1" and 3" has the potential to cause localized flash flooding in a few locations.
The body of an A&M researcher missing since Thursday has been found. Rick Rogers, Jr was discovered off the Aransas Bay in South Texas Friday.
Rogers and an A&M graduate student were working on a project with the College of Arts and Sciences when Rogers went missing. Coast Guard officials say Rogers never returned after he dove into the bay when a strong wind blew their boat off shore. After a night-and-day search, the Coast Guard found Rogers in murky waters 100 yards from where he jumped in.
Rogers was a 2004 graduate of A&M with a degree in wildlife and fisheries sciences. He had been on the $2 million project since September.
