BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - What a noisy night across the Brazos Valley! For just the third time this month, Easterwood Airport collected measurable rainfall in the very early hours of Sunday morning. Officially, Bryan-College Station received 0.78″ of rain between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. Nearly stationary storms dumped 3″ to 5″ of rain along the Highway 79 corridor in parts of Milam, Robertson, and Leon Counties. A Flash Flood Warning was issued for part of the night due to high water quickly outrunning the banks of the Little Brazos River between Gause and Hearne. A second, slow-moving line of heavy rain developed in the 2 a.m. hour of Sunday morning over Montgomery and San Jacinto Counties, depositing 2″ to 3″+ in rain gauges across the southeast side of the area.

As of Sunday, Bryan-College Station has now collected 1.74″ of rain in the month of May. For a month that is typically one of the wettest of the year, a 2.86″ deficit remains, compared to the 30-year-average. More rain is in the forecast through mid-week for the Brazos Valley.
