6:16 PM (Thurs, Feb 21):
Houston county has been removed from the Tornado watch.

6:15 PM (Thurs, Feb 21):
Our cold front continues to push southeastward through the region. Although a Tornado Watch remains in effect for counties east of I 45, we believe the threat for severe weather is diminishing as temperatures cool behind the front. The Tornado Watch may be discontinued for counties in the News 3 viewing area before 9 p.m.

If you step outdoors in Bryan/College Station you'll likely notice the cool breeze, courtesy of our cold front pushing across the region.

Over the past hour, pretty much all of the thunderstorm activity has been along and east of I 45 and we expect this trend to continue.

If you live from Brenham-to-Bryan/College Station-to-Centerville and westward, the threat for bad weather has ended for you. Locations east of this line should continue to monitor KBTX and KBTX.com for any breaking weather developments.

The atmosphere is starting to juice up a bit ahead of a slow moving cold front. The good news is that the front is right on our doorstep from a Cameron-to-Hearne-to-Centerville line. The threat for severe weather has diminished northwest of the aforementioned locations.

The bad news is that any storm that develops east of this front (particularly east of I 45) will have the potential of becoming severe with large hail and isolated tornadoes being a possibility. The threat for strong storms in the eastern portions of the Brazos Valley will diminish after 9:00 p.m.
