A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for parts of the Brazos valley as some of these thunderstorms could bring some hefty downpours.

A Flash Flood watch has been issued until 7am Wednesday

The rain chance sticks around as the sunsets. Another cold front from the west is expected to push through overnight bringing more chances for rain and rumbles. These thunderstorms are expected to clear out before the run rises on Wednesday allows for a couple of days rest for the rain chances before they return this weekend.
