RECAP: Tuesday rain and thunderstorms across the Brazos Valley

By  | 

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - What a day of rain and thunderstorms across the Brazos Valley. In the wake of active weather, multiple inches of rain was left behind along with a gorgeous post-rain sunset / rainbow combo.

Most of the weather that passed through the Brazos Valley Tuesday was strong -- but not technically severe. There were times that storms were spitting out over 1,000 lightning strikes in a 30 minute time frame, pushing wind in excess of 30 to 50mph, and dumping copious amounts of rain that created minor areas of flooding for a few hours.

The height of the activity came between 5pm & 6:30pm when a tornado warning was issued for North Mongtomery and South Walker Counties. While no tornado was confirmed, strong rotation near North Lake Conroe caused concern through 6:15pm.

After the rain and and storms standing water and a gorgeous sunset was left behind for much of the area. Feel free to click through the pictures sent in from across the Brazos Valley.
