Decent Chance of Rain Arrives Tuesday
Storms are quickly forming early this afternoon across the Brazos Valley. Heavy rain and frequent lightning will be the primary hazards, although some gusty winds cannot be ruled out as well.
Coverage doesn't look to be the best today, but the rain chances definitely warrants grabbing an umbrella for any afternoon plans especially. Those who don't see rain will likely have heat index in the triple digits from lunchtime through about 6pm.
A lingering shower or two will be possible Wednesday before we head into a drier, toastier pattern that should last through the holiday weekend. We then turn our attention to some serious heat by the end of the week.
