Wednesday brought 90° heat and humidity back to the Brazos Valley. Thursday will contain the same for much of the day -- but showers and thunderstorms will be possible by evening. A few could be strong to severe.
SLIGHT RISK for Severe Thunderstorms Thursday
The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of the Brazos Valley under a SLIGHT RISK for severe thunderstorms Thursday.
A solid portion of East, Central, North, and Southeast Texas are included as well.
Should strong to severe thunderstorms pop up, the potential includes: (in order from highest to lowest concern)
Potential Storm Timeline
A few spotty showers will be possible from sunrise to 9am -- mainly from a weak disturbance passing over North Texas.
Otherwise, we'll wait until early evening and into the overnight hours for the best chance of thunderstorms.
The current thinking is that showers and thunderstorms will develop to the north and east of the Brazos Valley during that afternoon hours. Fast forward to the evening hours -- those storms could form a cluster of rain and storms as they drift into the Brazos Valley.
That said, the latest PinPoint "Future Radar" develops our own isolated thunderstorms during the early evening hours, across the Eastern Brazos Valley. Should that occur -- an isolated tornado threat will exist with any discrete thunderstorm that manages to fire up.
Here's a look at the latest run:
