Roaming showers and a few rumbles of thunder remain possible for the Brazos Valley through early evening. Planning on stepping out to catch a fireworks show this evening? Generally, the rain chance should fizzle with sunset but cannot (and will not) rule out some isolated pockets of rain lingering through 8 to 10 pm. Heavy rain falling over Brazos County moved little since it began in the 5pm hour. It will likely need to rain itself out through sunset before coming to an end.

Stuck on repeat in a very rare rainy pattern in the month of July for the Brazos Valley. A very broad and weak area of low pressure is in the neighborhood Monday, allowing for scattered rain and non-severe storms to develop with the afternoon heat Monday. Window is smaller -- bulk of the activity expected between 3 pm and 7pm -- with the highest potential falling along and west of the Brazos River. That low moves over northern Mexico Tuesday. That feature to the west and high pressure in the Gulf keeping the moisture supply alive: ongoing daily, scattered rounds of wet weather is anticipated for the rest of the week. Weekend plans? Right now, things look cloudy with the chance for (you guessed it) passing areas of rain. Due to the scattered nature, rainfall totals will not be uniform area-wide, but another 1.5″ to 3.5″ is expected to fall ahead of next weekend. Good news to it all? Temperatures remain “below-average” in the upper 80s and low 90s.
