Heavy Rain / Storm Threat Increasing
Headed into, what seems to be, a few active weather days for the Brazos Valley. Starting tonight -- we'll be looking out west for possible overnight rain. If storms that form in Mexico / far West Texas can hold together, that could mean scattered rain to a few rumbles of thunder after 10pm. Severe weather not anticipated -- however, breezy wind, thunder & lightning may accompany this activity if it can reach the Brazos Valley.
Thursday brings the potential for our first round of scattered rain and storms by the afternoon hours. Won't rule out a strong to briefly severe storm (wind / hail concern) -- however, heavy rain in a short period of time will be the be a larger threat by afternoon. Expect to quiet down Thursday night only to expect another round of rain & storms Friday. A higher coverage of activity and a slightly better chance for a few severe thunderstorms is in the works there. By midnight Saturday, 1" to 3" + of rain is possible across the Brazos Valley.
Wednesday night: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain and thunderstorms after 10pm. Low: 75. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
Thursday: Cloudy with a 60% chance of rain and thunderstorms. Few strong with heavy rain possible. High: 83. Wind: SSE 10-15 mph, with gusts upwards of 20mph.
Thursday night: Cloudy with a 30% chance of rain & thunderstorms. Low: 73. Wind: SSE 5-15 mph.
Friday: Cloudy with rain and thunderstorms likely. Isolated strong / severe & heavy rain possible. High: 81. Wind: SSE 10-20 mph.
