Scattered rain & rumbles possible Thursday
Keep your PinPoint Weather App handy through the rest of the work week.
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Grab the rain gear as you are headed out the door Thursday morning! A few rounds of scattered rain and rumbles will be possible across portions of the Brazos Valley throughout the day.
Eyes will be on other parts of the state early Thursday to watch and see if this rain and storm activity can initially develop. If so, we could see the first round of scattered rain and thunderstorms move across the Brazos Valley from west to east around the late morning-early afternoon timeframe. If this activity can hold together, lightning, gusty winds, and pockets of small hail are not out of the realm of possibilities with a stronger thunderstorm. As another disturbance moves across the Lone Star State, another round of scattered rain and a few storms may move into the area late afternoon and into Thursday evening, if the activity can develop across portions of Central/North Texas earlier in the day.
While the exception rather than the rule, the Storm Prediction Center has the majority of the Brazos Valley placed in a 1 out of 5 risk for an isolated storm to become strong/severe. If a storm does require any extra attention, the main threats will be lightning, hail, and gusty winds. By the time all is said and done, rainfall totals could range from 0.25″ - 0.75″, with the higher totals found for those areas that are able to pick up on a few heavier downpours.
A scattered rain chance sticks with us into the last day of the work week as a cold front heads our direction. While a few showers will be possible throughout the first half of the day Friday, another rain chance will arrive with the cold front Friday evening. A thin line of broken showers and isolated rumbles will be possible as this boundary pushes through from north to south. Not looking to be a complete washout and still details to finetune, but for now plan on keeping the rain gear handy for any Friday evening plans.
As a north wind returns in the front’s wake, cooler and drier air will pump back into the Brazos Valley through the weekend. Thermometers are only slated to reach for the mid-to-upper 60s Saturday and Sunday afternoons after starting off the mornings in the low 50s/upper 40s respectively.
