A line of strong to occasionally severe thunderstorms fired up along the Northern Brazos Valley during the afternoon hours of Thursday, July 3rd, 2014. Outflow winds caused a shelf cloud to move over parts of the area.
A shelf -- or Arcus -- cloud is typically a line of clouds attached to thunderstorms pushing out an outflow boundary (aka cooler winds ahead of the storm).
That outflow wind moved through parts of the Brazos Valley at roughly 30 to 40mph.
Above are pictures shared with News 3 from Weather Watchers across the Brazos Valley.
