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%.

Drizzle / mist / cool temperatures out there for your Thursday evening plans. 

Pessimistic rain and storm chances tomorrow...but won't rule it out. Weekend concerns grow as we gear up for what could be a VERY heavy rain event. Details:

Just a few thunderstorms popping up over the Brazos Valley today -- but that looks to change, yet again.

A cold front slides into our backyard overnight. Widespread rain & thunderstorms are back in the forecast Thursday and Friday. Flooding once again a big concern. Details:

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.

Just a few areas of rain and thunderstorms developing in the Brazos Valley today -- although one did produce a brief tornado in Giddings around the lunch hour. 

Isolated storms at best tomorrow -- but don't discredit that lower rain chance. Details:

More rain & storms expected in the Brazos Valley Tuesday. 

Morning spot showers is expected to turn into afternoon, widespread clusters of rain and thunderstorms. Few storms could become strong with gusty winds, small hail, lightning, and torrential rainfall.

Daily chance of rain and storms continue -- however, they should become more hit or miss through the week. Localized areas of flooding will continue to be a concern.

FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in place through 7pm for the ENTIRE Brazos Valley.

A widespread band of rain & thunderstorms stretches from the Panhandle to the Rio Grande, west of I-35 this morning.

Expect that widespread rain to arrive after lunch and linger into the evening hours. Few storms could be strong to severe. Strong winds & very, heavy rainfall will be our two greatest concerns today.
