Isolated severe storm possible Tuesday
Mid/late afternoon brings wind and hail potential
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The arrival of Gulf moisture in the form of a warm front will make for a somewhat unstable environment this afternoon.
With ample low-level moisture in place, a little daytime heating could be enough to trigger thunderstorms through the early evening hours Tuesday.
Overall, we expect coverage (and thus, the chance for severe weather) to be low for today, but any storm that forms will be capable of strong wind and up to nickel sized hail. The early afternoon update from the Storm Prediction Center has also included the western reaches of the Brazos Valley in a low 2% chance for a brief spin-up, but that is more likely to our west.
Timing: Eyes are on the afternoon to early evening for development. Latest hi-res model data has been favoring an area along and west of Highway 6 through the early evening, but we’ll be watching the radar area-wide for you.
Rain and storm chances continue through the remainder of the week, but with deeper moisture arriving from the remnants of Hurricane Pamela, we will shift to more of a heavy rain threat until the front arrives at some point Thursday night into Friday.
