Much Needed Rain

By  | 

A good soaking rain has been falling across the Brazos Valley Monday, but so far the totals have generally been less than a quarter inch.

The area could see some heavier rain this Monday evening as a line of showers and thunderstorms moves through with a cold front.

Rainfall amounts between one half and one inch are possible Monday evening. However, this rain will not be enough to alleviate the fire danger.

Stronger winds and lower humidity on Tuesday will dry things out quickly, and a Fire Weather Watch has been issued for Tuesday because of the potential danger. High pressure will be overhead Tuesday night allowing the winds to decrease and temperatures to fall to near freezing early Wednesday morning.

Ample sunshine on Wednesday will warm us up quickly to near 70, and warmer temperatures are in store for Thursday as well. Another cold front will move through Friday night, and there may be enough moisture return for a chance of rain on Friday. However, it doesn't look as wet as the system that's currently affecting us.
