Stormy Start, Quiet Finish to the Week
After a line of severe thunderstorms barreled through the Brazos Valley, we're waking up to scattered showers and storms early Monday morning. Where high winds were the main threat in the overnight, we now transition to more of a minor flooding threat until this system passes later this morning. That being said, an isolated severe storm with wind gusts greater than 60mph is still possible this morning. Rain should slowly come to an end from west to east before midday.
We finish the day with some sprinkle to light showers possible, but skies will start to clear in the overnight and will usher us into a relatively calm week, with plenty of sunshine and a chance to dry out. Afternoon highs will reach into the mid to upper 70s, then briefly the 80s on Thursday ahead of our next cold front that will knock us back down to normal by the time we get into the weekend. Our next shot at rain could come in the form of some afternoon showers on Sunday.
Monday: Cloudy with a 80% chance of rain and thunderstorms before 4pm. High: 71. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
