Isolated Rain / Storm Chance...Bigger Potential Later This Week
Not an overwhelming chance for overnight rain & thunderstorms -- but something to monitor. Storms are expected to develop across far West Texas through the evening hours and drift east. While most of this activity is expected to fall apart as they move closer to the I-35 corridor, there could be a few ongoing storms that reach the Western Brazos Valley between 10pm & midnight. Most stay dry & severe weather is not anticipated, but a few rumbles of thunder can't be ruled out through 2am (30%).
Just a small chance of showers to an isolated storm Tuesday & Wednesday. That said, should a storm form, it could bring localized heavy rain, gusty winds, and possible hail. A widespread rain and storm chance is in the works for Thursday and (especially) Friday. If the potential holds, parts of the area could see another 1" to 2"+ before the upcoming holiday weekend.
Monday night: Mostly cloudy, possible scattered rain / storms before midnight. Low: 72. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain and storms. Isolated strong / severe. High: 88. Wind: SE 10-15 mph, with higher gusts.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with an isolated chance of rain & thunderstorms. High: 87. Wind: S 10-15 mph.
