Cooler temperatures expected into Tuesday with the high temperatures hitting 80°,almost 10° lower than yesterday’s high. This slight cool down is thanks to a cold front that is slowly trying to pass through the Brazos Valley. This boundary provides the right ingredients to create scattered showers will sprinkle the Brazos Valley the beginning half of the day becoming more isolated into the afternoon with a couple of pockets of sunshine possible. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Southwestern part of the Brazos Valley in a 2 out of 5 risk for scattered severe weather and the northeastern part of the Brazos Valley in a 1 out of 5 risk for isolated severe weather Tuesday evening and night.

As a disturbance crosses the area, rain and thunderstorms are expected to develop after 10 PM. Closer to midnight and into the very early hours of Wednesday morning, a few of those storms may cluster up across the Northeastern Brazos Valley, attempting to produce large hail (quarter size or slightly bigger) and wind in excess of 40-60 mph. That concern moves further into East Texas and Louisiana by daybreak Wednesday. However, the chance for scattered on & off again showers is expected to continue through the day. Rainfall totals of 0.25″ to 0.50″ will be possible through Wednesday evening, with localized 1″ amounts not ruled out if stronger storms manage to rumble through Tuesday night. Wednesday night temperatures drop a little cooler to the high 50s thanks to the cold front that brought the rain chances throughout the day.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance for showers. High: 80. Wind: NNE 5-10 mph.

Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 50% chance for showers and storms. Isolated strong-to-severe storms possible. Low: 65. Wind: NE 5-15 mph.
