Isolated thunderstorm may rattle by again Tuesday afternoon
Isolated strong storms dotted a very small amount of Brazos Valley real estate Monday afternoon. Any storm chance that is in place will come to an end between sunset and 9pm. A quiet, clear night turns into a sunny start Tuesday with temperatures racing up the thermometer. Expect the 90s, feeling like 100°, by the lunch hour. Like Monday, clouds fluff up and a few, isolated storms will be possible in the afternoon to early evening heat. While severe weather is not anticipated, strongest activity could produce heavy rain, pea-size hail, and frequent lightning. Many will be missed, but a couple of us may be pushed inside for a bit. That rain chance comes down to a very low 20% chance Wednesday before falling off Thursday and Friday.
The Gulf of Mexico continues to be monitored very closely as the latest from the National Hurricane Center now puts a high chance of tropical development there over the next five days. With a tropical depression expected by late week, where the center of the system develops will be very important. With upper level winds pushing from southwest to northeast, the greatest impacts -- strong wind and heavy rain -- are expected around and east of that center. Anybody west would likely find little-to-no impacts. For now, concerns will remain low for the Brazos Valley and southeast Texas with the heaviest rain currently forecast for Louisiana over the Father’s Day Weekend. Still -- there are unknowns in the next few days that will need a watchful eye & potentially could change the forecast locally.
