The Storm Prediction Center has left most of the Brazos Valley in a 1 out of 5, lowest and isolated, chance for a strong/severe storm overnight as a cold front re-takes over the area. Any storm that manages to develop between midnight and 5 am will bring the potential for hail to the size of a quarter or slightly larger. That said, the expectation is that this risk for any significant storms is anticipated south of the area -- generally between I-10 and the Upper Texas Coast. Something to monitor, but most of us will make it through the night without disruption or incident. The wind kicks up behind this front as we sleep, remaining breezy/gusty through the day Tuesday. At times, that wind is expected to peak as high as 25-30mph, helping to hold temperatures to the low 70s by afternoon. As another disturbance comes across Texas, very light, scattered rain returns (30%) leaving the end of the day, overnight, and start of Wednesday a bit drizzly and drippy.

The next weather maker is already slipping south just off the West Coast, set to impact the country by late week and the start of the weekend. Highest potential for severe weather is currently north of the Brazos Valley both Thursday and Friday, but we will once again be on the lookout for any active weather by Friday evening and again Saturday. No need to cancel early weekend plans -- but if this front stalls or gets hung up over the area, that could allow for a few rumblers again Saturday afternoon.
