***FLASH FLOOD WATCH Until 4pm Monday***
An active night is in the works for the Brazos Valley. A strong storm system will approach with a cold front moving in through early Monday morning. That'll open the door for a heavy rain event across much of the region, especially the southern half of the Brazos Valley through Monday afternoon.
This evening, not much is expected other than a couple of isolated showers here and there. We cool it off slowly into the upper 60s after sunset and then make it into mid 60s most of the night. Now, for the big story: The RAIN. Storms should develop out to our west after sunset and then slowly progress east through the late evening. After midnight, those storms will move into our western counties, and the flash flooding threat will begin. At this point, the heaviest time frame for rain looks to be between 1am-6am Monday, with many of us picking up a good 2-3" of rainfall, with some isolated higher amounts likely. There is also a MARGINAL risk for a couple of strong/severe storms early Monday, but we are mainly concerned about heavy rain with this event. Beyond Monday afternoon, we should dry things out and get back into the 70s for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Sunday Night: Cloudy with an 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms after midnight. Few strong / severe. Low: 64. Wind: SSE 10-15 mph.
Monday: Cloudy with a 70% chance of rain and thunderstorms before 4pm. High: 70. Wind: E 5-10 mph.
Monday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain. Low: 54. Wind: ENE 5-10 mph.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy early. Afternoon sunshine. High: 74. Wind: N 5-10 mph.
