The Rainy Pattern Is Back
Sunday left most across the Brazos Valley enjoying sunshine and temperatures in the low 70s as high pressure sat in overhead. Hopefully plans were made outdoors to enjoy this weather, because we have a change in our weather pattern on the way. That area of high pressure keeping us sunny and dry today will start to slide away from the area which introduces chances for rain back into the picture along with more cloud cover. Time to bring the rain gear back out!
A combination of an area of low pressure sitting in the Gulf of Mexico and the remnants of what is now Hurricane Willa will bring in better chances for rain for the first half of this week. Rain chances on Monday look to be the lowest but not completely out of the question, with areas along I-10 looking to be in the sweet spot for better rain chances. Showers linger across the area on Tuesday and by Wednesday is when the bulk of the rain should be passing through. Current outlooks are projecting another 2" to 3"+ for the Brazos Valley over the next few days. We will need to keep an eye out for flooding concerns as the ground is already saturated. The good news is that this will be a quick moving system, and by Thursday, we should start to dry out.
