Next Chance for Rain & Storms on the Way
Next storm system to impact the State of Texas is spinning was spinning over the Southwest US Monday afternoon and evening. Tuesday brings thick cloud cover to the Brazos Valley to start the day. While not for all, a thin band of showers may stretch across the area for the morning hours -- which means a few of us may start the day with a on / off light rain. By afternoon, a bit of sun is expected to break through the clouds. That may help develop passing, quick showers to a stray, non-severe rumble of thunder. Highs are headed for the upper 70s and low 80s. Wind is breezy out of the southeast.
Wednesday is the next day to monitor for the potential for strong / severe storms. A line of rain and thunderstorm is expected to set up camp across North and West Texas by Tuesday evening. That line will be slow to move toward the Brazos Valley -- currently looking to arrive in the western reaches of the area between late afternoon & early evening. Ahead of the line, passing showers. As the main round of rain & storms moves in, strong wind, heavy rain, and possible hail is not ruled out. Thursday could leave a few lingering showers and rumbles of thunder through the morning before slightly drier air takes over to clear things out for thee weekend. All said and done, 1" to 2" of rain is possible with localized higher totals not ruled out for the western & and northern counties.
