Still on track to find scattered rain and thunderstorms in the Brazos Valley. As of early this morning, storm activity has already begun to develop just southwest of our backyard. The greatest severe weather sits south and west of the Brazos Valley, with a SLIGHT RISK area (from the Storm Prediction Center) clipping our southwestern counties.
Isolated storms will be possible by afternoon. Should they manage to become severe -- a brief, isolated tornado threat can't be ruled out. Evening hours could bring a line of storms, sweeping west to east. If that line can hold together, winds in excess of 40-60mph will be possible within the strongest activity. Rainfall totals could run between 1" and 2".
Saturday: Cloudy with a 90% chance of rain and thunderstorms. Some could be strong to severe. High: 70. Wind SE 10-20 mph.
Saturday Night: Cloudy with a 80% chance of showers and storms before midnight. Low: 58. Winds SW 10-15 mph.
- Rain chance is increasing across the Brazos Valley, as an upper level system swings from the West Coast down to Texas. Saturday could bring a round of strong to severe thunderstorms to the area.
- A lake-effect storm that dumped more than 6 feet of snow in the Buffalo area trapped people on highways in an area where heavy snow is the norm for most of the winter. More than 2 to 3 feet is forecast to fall Thursday. Why was this storm so fierce?
- Sunshine and south winds returned to the Brazos Valley, Wednesday, bringing back more seasonable weather for November. With those warmer conditions comes our next chance of rain and thunderstorms.
- A snowstorm that could drop two to three feet of snow is on its way toward the Buffalo, New York area -- which already has as much as six feet of snow on the ground from a ferocious lake-effect storm.
