From weeks of near and record heat to the coolest temperatures the Brazos Valley has experienced in about a month! Early Sunday morning’s cold front was a treat to close out the weekend after bringing some sorely needed rain. Clouds will slowly spread back in overnight along with areas of patchy fog by daybreak Monday. Another mildly cool start to the day will be waiting for you as lows fall around the mid-60s. Monday’s outlook has shifted to be drier, with only a 20% chance for an isolated area of rain/rumble by late afternoon into the evening. Stormy weather is expected to develop across the western reaches of Texas which will eventually reach the area by or just before sunrise Tuesday. Gusty showers to bands of rain with wind 40mph+ are expected as we start the day. As that disturbance passes, spotty showers will remain possible through the morning. A drier afternoon is expected before a line of storms approaches from the north by late evening, bringing another chance for strong wind, some hail, and heavy rainfall as we try to sleep into the early hours of Wednesday.

One last passing disturbance pushing a weak cold front will spark a last cluster of thunderstorms late Wednesday. Again, a few storms could be strong-to-severe with big wind being the greatest concern. As these back-to-back-to-back storm chances come through, anywhere from 1.5″ to 3″ of rain will be possible, with localized 4″+ totals not ruled out by sunrise Thursday. A cooler, drier air mass moves in for the back half of the week, shutting down the storm chance and bringing sunshine and breezy wind back for the long Memorial Day Weekend.

Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy. Patchy fog possible. Low: 66. Wind: NE 5-10 mph.

Monday: Mostly cloudy skies and a 20% chance for rain and storms. High: 89. Wind: E 5-10 mph.

Monday Night: Cloudy with a 50% chance for rain and thunderstorms after midnight. Some strong/severe. Low: 67. Wind: S 10-15 mph.

Tuesday: Cloudy with an 80% chance for rain and thunderstorms. High: 84. Wind: S 15-20 mph.
