Saturday brings another chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms to the Brazos Valley. During the afternoon hours, scattered areas of rain and storms could develop in the daytime heat (30%). A line of rain and thunderstorms will be possible between sunset and midnight -- moving in from the north & west. If these storms can reach the area, they could pose a localized flooding & damaging wind threat.
A Montgomery County volunteer fire department is adding four new water tanker trucks to its fleet.
Magnolia fire officials say after last year's busy wildfire season, the added equipment will provided extra protection from the threat of fires.
As early as April, firefighters will have access to almost 12,000 gallons of water than they currently have available.
The new tankers will be housed at strategic stations throughout the county where lack of fire hydrants make it difficult have enough water to fight fires.
Each new truck will be able to hold about 3,300 gallons of water.
