48-Hour Forecast for Bryan/College Station

Threat of Heavy Rain / Flooding This Memorial Day Weekend

The cold front that cooled things off these past few days will surge north as a warm front, as we start the weekend. Unsettled, tropical air will spill back into the Brazos Valley on breezy south to southeast winds. While Saturday is not expected to be a complete wash-out, scattered downpours are expected at times -- especially midday through mid-afternoon.

Sunday brings a widespread, heavy rain threat to the Brazos Valley -- and most of Texas, for that matter. A line of storms could arrive from the west as early as the pre-sunrise hours and slowly side east through the day. 2" to 5" of rain cannot be ruled out, with localized higher totals expected. A few strong to severe storms will be possible -- damaging winds will be the main concern. Hail and a brief tornado threat cannot be ruled out. Moral of the story: keep up with the forecast -- Sunday looks like a tricky day for the area.
