Clouds will increase from the west as an upper-low slides out of Mexico and into Texas tonight / Wednesday. A mix of sun and clouds, breezy south winds, and warm temperatures are on hand again for Wednesday. While a few spot showers cannot be ruled out before noon -- the better chance for scattered rain and a few isolated thunderstorms arrives by 3pm and later.
While widespread severe weather is not anticipated, a few strong storms could bring thunder, lightning, gusty winds, and brief heavy downpours. Rain totals could amount to 1/2" for many -- with localized higher totals in a few locations. Thursday looks dry. A Good Friday afternoon / evening front brings the next shot at rain and storms to the Brazos Valley.
