48-Hour Forecast for Bryan/College Station

Threat of Heavy Rain / Flooding This Memorial Day Weekend

The cold front that cooled things off these past few days will surge north as a warm front, as we start the weekend. Unsettled, tropical air will spill back into the Brazos Valley on breezy south to southeast winds. While Saturday is not expected to be a complete wash-out, scattered downpours are expected at times -- especially midday through mid-afternoon.

Sunday brings a widespread, heavy rain threat to the Brazos Valley -- and most of Texas, for that matter. A line of storms could arrive from the west as early as the pre-sunrise hours and slowly side east through the day. 2" to 5" of rain cannot be ruled out, with localized higher totals expected. A few strong to severe storms will be possible -- damaging winds will be the main concern. Hail and a brief tornado threat cannot be ruled out. Moral of the story: keep up with the forecast -- Sunday looks like a tricky day for the area.

Saturday: Generally cloudy with a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms. High: 83. Wind: SE 10-15 mph, with gusts upwards of 20 mph.

Saturday Night: Cloudy with a 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms after midnight. Low: 72. Wind: SSE 10-15 mph.

Sunday: Cloudy with a 90% chance of rain and thunderstorms. High: 76. Wind: SSE 15-20 mph.

Sunday Night: Cloudy with a 50% chance of rain and thunderstorms. Low: 70. Wind: SSE 5-15 mph.

From the Ground Up - Rains Too Much Of A Good Thing?

Updated: 05/21/2015 - With the new drought of record being as recent as 2011, it’s hard to find an agricultural producer who’s eager to complain about the amount of rainfall we’ve received, but some locations in our area have received more than seventy-five per cent of our normal rainfall in the first five months of this year.
