Keep the Umbrella Handy, You Might Need it Soon
Storms are a possibility today as a disturbance moves in from the south, off the Gulf of Mexico. The best bet for needing that umbrella will probably be in the southern half of the Brazos Valley, mainly Austin, Waller, Montgomery, Washington, Grimes, and San Jacinto counties.
The better bet for widespread rain across SE Texas looks to be on Friday as a better moisture funnels inland. Totals between 1/4 inch and an inch are more likely on Friday. The weekend could be active as well, but rain chances look best on Sunday afternoon and evening. Keep that umbrella handy!
