Friday Evening Weather Update (5/9): Humid Mother's Day Weekend

After a couple of heavy rain events across the Brazos Valley, we'll look for quiet weather to take us through our Mother's Day weekend. That said, a stray shower / thunderstorm will still be possible.

Rain Is Good...Until.....

Soggy grounds in the Brazos Valley again -- some pockets of the area have picked up over 4" of rain between Thursday and Friday!

That said, where there is good...there is a bit of "bad" as well.

Humidity will run high for the next couple of days. Dew points hover in the upper 60s / low 70s.

Mix that abundance of moisture with afternoon highs in the upper 80s -- and it will feel more like the low 90s for many of us both Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

A little uncomfortable. A tad stuffy. But not a bad problem to have considering how long we've gone with a lack of rain across the area.

Another Big Chance for Rain Coming

Laissez les bons temps rouler -- let the good times roll!

We'll get one more shot at significant rainfall across for the Brazos Valley, before we shut off the faucet once again.

We'll watch our next upper level low swing across the Canadian / United States line, by the start of next week. Even with the upper support that far north, a trough of low pressure is expected to dip all the way down into Oklahoma & North Texas.

That will drag a cold front to the Brazos Valley -- but its what is along and ahead of that front that snags our attention.

A line of rain and thunderstorms is expected to reach the Brazos Valley once again.

Timing on this system has been slowing just a bit each day -- for now it looks like rain may fall starting Monday evening & overnight then (possibly) linger into the early hours of Tuesday.

We'll work on the timing of this potential rainfall over the weekend. Moral of the story is "don't put that umbrella away just yet!"
