More Rain & Storms This Week
Cloudy & humid Monday in the wake of overnight storms for some in the Brazos Valley. Through the evening hours, as a boundary lifts north through the area, cannot rule out a stay shower to a possible rumble of thunder. Overall chance is low through 1am. Tuesday starts cloudy and ends with sunshine breaking through helping to kick up a gusty south to southeast wind. Again, cannot rule out a stray shower or storm, but most (if not all) look dry tomorrow.
Wednesday is the next, expected active weather day for the Brazos Valley. A line of rain and thunderstorms takes form in West Texas Tuesday afternoon / evening and is expected to reach the area by sunrise Wednesday. That line will spend the morning hours sweeping east through midday. Much like the last few rounds, strong to severe thunderstorms are not ruled out -- damaging winds, isolated tornado threats, heavy rain, and large hail all have to be considered. If the atmosphere can recover, there may be a secondary flare up of isolated storms in the afternoon, mainly for the Western and Central Brazos Valley. 1/2" to 1.50" of rainfall is possible as this next rain chance swings through.
Monday Night: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain through 1am. Mild. Low: 68. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
