Monitoring a line of severe storms to the west and north of the Brazos Valley tonight. 

PinPoint "Future Radar" has it all but falling apart by the time it reaches us by 1-2am. Other hi-res models have them falling apart but still significant. We'll need to continue to watch trends next few hours:

FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect for the ENTIRE Brazos Valley through the weekend.

TODAY: Scattered ares of rain and thunderstorms are expected through the (mainly) afternoon hours. A few could be strong with heavy rain, lightning, & gusty winds. Rain chance: 50%

TONIGHT: A line of rain and thunderstorms is expected to arrive from the west and move east overnight. Strong winds in excess of 40mph and very heavy rainfall is possible as this line moves through. Flooding will be a concern, along with a few strong severe thunderstorms. Rain chance: 80%

SUNDAY: We'll need to monitor trends -- the rain coverage will be highly dependent on how quickly this line of rain & storms moves to the east. Regardless, greatest chance occurs in the morning, followed by rain & storms moving south and east of the area by afternoon. Flooding will be a concern, along with a few strong severe thunderstorms. Rain chance: 80%.

Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms have developed between Abilene and Dallas this afernoon / evening. Same case with some activity around the Big Bend Region. 

We'll need to monitor those storms -- if they manage to hold together post-sunset, we may see rain & thunderstorms pass through the Brazos Valley between midnight and 6am. 

Scattered rain / storms possible during the afternoon hours Wednesday. Very hit or miss, but a few could be strong with gusty winds and heavy rain. 

Rain chance continues each day. Very hit or miss as well...with higher coverage possible again by the weekend.

Cold front is sitting just south of a Huntsville to Brenham line. Cloudy, breezy & in the 60s behind it....many of us may struggle to reach just 70 degrees this afternoon.

Heaviest rain chance will be along that cold front through the rest of today. As a disturbance passes by, it may be able to kick up more scattered rain and isolated rumbles of thunder (40%).

More hit-or miss rain chances in the forecast Friday / Saturday. SUNDAY / MONDAY are going to be the biggest days to watch.  Widespread, heavy rain looks to be the outlook heading into the Memorial Day holiday. 

Below: 5 day rainfall outlook across the region. Localized flooding concerns are on our minds heading into your holiday weekend.
