After a quiet morning, the skies across central and southeast Texas have become unsettled. Isolated rain pockets have sprung up around the area, however, this is the calm before the storm.
A very powerful low pressure system is currently located in deep south Texas. This will continue to pump in copious amounts of moisture which will lead to excess rainfall for many across the Brazos Valley as it continues to push eastward. Most of us will receive between 1 and 3 inches of rain with isolated amounts over 4".

The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of southeast Texas in a moderate risk for severe weather. These storms will be capable of producing very large hail, high winds, and deadly tornadoes. They have also indicated that a new severe weather watch is likely to be issued for portions of southeast Texas within the next couple of hours. Once this low and associated front clear the Brazos Valley, skies should slowly begin to break making for a pleasant day tomorrow.
