Opportunity for a few rounds of rain and storms to rattle the Brazos Valley Thursday

Updated: 2 hours ago

While a few showers are not ruled out overnight, the main chance for rain and thunderstorms is expected to stay closer to the coast this evening and tonight. Thursday will be a day to take the umbrella and your KBTX PinPoint Weather app: intermittent rain chances are back in the forecast. To tee this forecast up -- our rain chance locally is highly dependent on what happens in other parts of Texas. That said, it looks like the first chance for rain and quick thunderstorms may blow west to east across the Brazos Valley between late morning and early afternoon. Gusty wind, lightning, and maybe even a few small hailstones could come if this activity can hold together, blown in from West Texas. Second round will be possible late afternoon to the evening hours as a disturbance drops north to south. While mostly scattered rain, a few embedded thunderstorms could be mixed in if this activity can fire up in North Texas before moving in. Any thunder rumbles could once again bring heavy rian and a very isolated risk for hail up to the size of a quarter or smaller. 0.25″ to 0.75″ of rain may be up for grabs if we can see these chances through.
