Watching the Radar This Weekend
A good slug of tropical moisture is seeping back into the Brazos Valley tonight. After a few sunset showers, cloudy skies are expected overnight (at the least) with a few passing, light showers possible at times (at the most). Mild night on hand -- lows are only falling to the low / mid 60s by sunrise, a good 20° - 25°+ from earlier in the week.
Tomorrow and for the weekend, get your umbrella out. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely by Friday afternoon, and at a couple different points over the weekend. Evening plans absolutely look salvageable, with the mid to late afternoon being the time where a few of us may dodge showers and storms. Sunday brings our best chance of strong storms as another cold front rolls into our area. This will not be an all day type of rain, but Sunday could definitely begin noisy - with our best chance of finding thunderstorms from the early morning through about midday. Behind the front, we look cool, clear and comfortable for next week. While the overall severe weather threat is not high, any rumble of thunder could come alongside a strong thunderstorms -- heavy rain, lightning, and gusty winds are the main concern. Before the front clears things out 1" to 3" of rain is not out of the question for many.
