Heavy rain and storms continue this morning
The past 24 hours have been nothing short of busy across the Brazos Valley. That being said, things will remain rather active through at least the lunch hour today. Flash flooding continues across much of the region, especially areas hit hardest: Washington, Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Montgomery, Walker, and Waller County. Some places in Washington County have picked up nearly 2 feet of rain!
Another round of storms is possible through mid to late morning, as it moves south from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Additional rain will only exacerbate already flooded areas. However, rain and storm chances start to drop off by this afternoon and evening, with just a few isolated storms possible.
The weekend will be warmer with isolated thunderstorms a possibility through Memorial Day. Temperatures top out in the mid to upper 80s with about a 20-30% chance of rain all three days. Many area roads will stay be dealing with flooding issues though, so drive safe and remember "turn around, don't drown."
