While the chances haven't been fantastic -- we've found a bit of scattered shower / isolated rumbles of thunder each day this week. Granted some have picked up a couple tenths of an inch of rain with passing downpours, others have only managed to see a few drop to equal out to a couple hundredths.
We'll continue to try and bring in some of that natural water for yards and gardens for a handful of days, before drying out the forecast heading into next week.
Slight Chance Here and There
Not much other than daytime heating, high moisture content in the atmosphere and a train of humidity rolling out of the Gulf of Mexico to help get some shower activity going over the next couple of days.
In fact, after today (light scattered showers are dotting the Brazos Valley as I type this at the noon hour), we can't rule out a bit of rain...but we can't promise it either.
Sunday Looks Best
High pressure will bulk up over the Western side of Texas and Mexico by Sunday. At the same time, a trough of low pressure will slide south just east of the state. That should allow a weak "cold" front to cross the Red River and continue south towards our corner of the state.
With that in mind, while that boundary won't actually cool us down, it will help act as a focal point to fire up some shower and thunderstorm activity.
While we aren't looking for the potential of severe weather, we could have a few stronger thunderstorms, with brief, heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds.
Hurricane Season is Here
Don't look now, but it's that time of the year again. June 1st (this upcoming Saturday) marks opening day for the Atlantic Hurricane Season.
While we aren't on the coast, it isn't out of the question to see inland hurricane conditions in the Brazos Valley, should a system strike the Texas Coast.
