Enjoying another rain-cooled morning with temps in the mid to low 70s! Some patchy fog will be possible through the morning drive, then a steamy rest of the day should give way to more storms by the afternoon. Clouds will quickly grow tall and fill the sky again around the midday and early afternoon hours. Like Sunday, scattered rain and storms are expected to develop and slowly move south through the afternoon hours. Localized 1″ - 2″ totals, lightning, and gusty wind 25-30mph will accompany the strongest storms. Spots of rain continue in the forecast at a 30% to 40% chance both Tuesday and Wednesday.

For now, the forecast features only very isolated rain chances and hotter highs in the mid and upper 90s for the back half of the workweek and weekend. Grace is expected to remain a tropical depression or less as it moves across the northern Caribbean Islands this week. However, as this feature moves to the Central Gulf by Thursday and Friday, it could re-strengthen to tropical storm status. High pressure ballooning over South Texas may push whatever Grace is / looks like toward South Texas or Mexico -- but there remains high uncertainty with the evolution and path of this tropical system. For now, impacts from Grace are not in the Brazos Valley’s weekend forecast, but changes are not off the table. Something to keep an eye on throughout the week...
