Additional scattered rain chances kick off the upcoming week
After rain and thunderstorms moved through portions of the Brazos Valley Saturday night, most of the area looks to sit quiet through the first half of the day Sunday, before daytime heating helps fuel additional rain and storm chances heading into Sunday afternoon/evening. Not everyone will get tagged by the rain, but for those that do -- the biggest concerns to watch out for with a stronger storm include localized flooding issues, especially in areas that picked up on higher rainfall totals Saturday. Temperature-wise, thermometers start off near 70° early Sunday morning before reaching for the mid-to-upper 80s by the afternoon, with heat index values in the 90s.
With plenty of moisture in place, a daily, scattered rain chance sticks with us through at least the first half of the upcoming week. It’s not looking to be a wash out all-day everyday situation, but radar trends will carefully need to be monitored for some disruptive travel and low-lying flooding at times. Temperatures start off on the downright muggy side in the mid 70s with afternoon highs sitting in the mid-to-upper 80s with heat index values in the 90s.
