Strong Storms and Heavy Rain Possible through Tuesday

By  | 

As a powerful storm system continues to push westward, the threat for showers and thunderstorms will increase across the Brazos Valley.

Gusty, southerly winds are currently feeding this storm system at rates of 20-30 mph, which has prompted a Wind Advisory for most of the region, including Bryan/College Station.

As the system approaches, the chance for thunderstorms will increase Monday evening through Tuesday afternoon. Heavy rain is forecast to be an issue with 1-3 inches of rain possible across the region. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the northern portions of the Brazos Valley (north of Bryan/College Station) through Tuesday morning. Remember, a Flash Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for flash flooding in and close to the watch area.

We are also under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms for the same time period as large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes will be possible early Tuesday across the Brazos Valley.
