Dark clouds hung around the Brazos Valley this afternoon -- some of us getting some decent rain out of them and others just finding some "cooler" temperatures under them. Regardless, the scene looked a lot like the picture to your right -- sent in by Weather Watcher Robin from Hwy. 21 West around OSR.
A weak disturbance moving a good slug of tropical moisture skirted along the coast today. That disturbance managed to bring some soaking rains to spots along the coast, but those of us north of I-10 played a "hit-or-miss" game with scattered showers through the afternoon hours.
Another Chance for Showers Tuesday.....For Some
Tropical moisture will continue to be pulled west by our disturbance on Tuesday. That said, we'll still be close enough that a few scattered showers / an isolated thunderstorm will be possible tomorrow. Due to the exiting moisture, the better bet will fall across the western side of the Brazos Valley. Drier air will start to filter into the eastern side of the Brazos Valley as high pressure starts to take control of our weather pattern. Not out of the question for those along I-45 and points east to find a touch of rain tomorrow -- but you'll find the lowest chance of us all.
Here's a look at the PinPoint Computer Forecast Model from Monday afternoon. Notice that a few wandering showers will be possible overnight (30%) followed by those widely scattered shower chances tomorrow.
When you break it down -- here's how the rain chance looks county-by-county:
August Ends in True Summertime Fashion
Sunshine....a lack of rain....and temperatures at or near the triple digits? Sounds like a typical first week of school / first game at Kyle Field forecast.
Typical and what we are heading for. Find the water and stay hydrated -- some of us could see 100° by Thursday afternoon.
