Another round of strong summer storms possible Wednesday
Strong summer storms shoved their way into the Brazos Valley Tuesday afternoon. As just-shy-of-severe storms collapsed dramatically, they shoved big 30-50mph wind northbound. Left over for the evening hours, light and steady rain that will need to exhaust itself before coming to an end sometime between 9pm and 10pm. The occasional flash of lightning may remain through sunset as well. Another chance for a repeat performance Wednesday-- although the coverage may not be as widespread -- by very late afternoon to the early evening hours. Otherwise, low 90s, a bit of a breeze, and less haze in the sky is in place for the middle of the week.
A weak weather system will try to dip into Texas Thursday and Friday. At the same time, a slug of deeper tropical moisture is expected to swivel into Southeast Texas Friday. Those factors combined should once again increase the coverage of afternoon rain and thunderstorms Thursday and Friday. That higher moisture value in the atmosphere will likely bring a few tropical downpours that could create gusty wind and localized, brief flooding to close out the week. Same time that moisture arrives, another plume of Saharan dust slides north out of the Gulf. Hazy skies make things look dull again by Friday and Saturday before leaving our atmosphere for the second half of the weekend.
