Decent Chance of Rain Arrives Tuesday
Best chance of rain that the Brazos Valley has seen in a few weeks -- and will see, for now -- is on the way Tuesday. To throw an early disclaimer out there: some could find a heavy downpour or two tomorrow...others may stay completely dry.
Winds shift out of the north Tuesday, which brings a focal point for rain and a few isolated storms to form on. Moisture values also increase for a short 18-24 hour period, helping to support the chance for a few areas of heavy rain, thunder, and lightning. While there won't be rain for the entire day, best window to find passing activity is between 1pm & 7pm. Some pick up ~1/4" of an inch, others (under a stronger storm) could manage 1/2" - 1", and many will remain dry. Otherwise, a cooling shower would be appreciated -- heat index values range from 103° to 106° by afternoon.
Monday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 76. Wind: W 5 mph.

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy with a few lingering evening showers. Low: 75. Wind: NE 5-10 mph.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy. 20% chance of rain / isolated thunderstorms. High: 92. Wind: NE 5-10 mph.
