SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH remains in place for parts of the Brazos Valley -- although the overall severe threat has passed most of us by. 

Widespread rain and a few stronger storms are sliding through the Brazos Valley. Latest:

Below: HRRR "Future Radar" 1pm - 9pm TODAY

We'll be on the lookout for possible rain & thunderstorm development in the Brazos Valley, this afternoon.

Looks like activity could move from south to north anytime after 2pm through the early evening. 

We'll need to monitor for a few strong / severe thunderstorms. Strong, damaging winds and large hail are the main concern.

After a sunny, gorgeous day in the Brazos Valley -- rain and thunderstorm chance is on the way Thursday, through the rest of the week.

Scattered areas of rain and isolated thunderstorms will be possible through the day  -- however, the best possibility arrives by midday to early evening.  We'll need to monitor those storms -- strong winds, heavy rain, hail, and cloud to ground lightning could all be possible.

From there, we'll need to tweak the forecast...but keep the idea of rain and thunderstorms in any plans through Saturday.

One passing rain maker is pushing east tonight -- clouds are clearing and we are looking for a very seasonable day night / Wednesday on hand.
Don't toss the umbrella aside....rain & thunderstorm chance is on the rise once again Thursday. Details on a soggy end to the work / school week:

After last night's noisy storms -- we could find a few more around the Brazos Valley late this afternoon/ tonight.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Brazos Valley under a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather.
Basically, if the sun can break out of the clouds, a few isolated thunderstorms could redevelop closer to sunset. If that were the case, they could become briefly severe with hail & strong winds being the main concern. That said, an isolated, brief tornado threat cannot be 100% ruled out.
We'll keep you updated through the day.

It was sunshine for most of your day -- but clouds are starting to edge back into the Brazos Valley this evening.

Rain and thunderstorms are in the outlook each day through Saturday -- at times, a few strong to severe storms could be possible. Details on what to look for and when:

Per the Storm Prediction Center​ : Severe thunderstorms could be possible in the Brazos Valley both THURSDAY & FRIDAY.

Main concern -- should we find thunderstorms that become strong to severe -- will be large hail & damaging winds.  

As of now, it looks the the best time frame for storms is lunchtime through early evening. 

Stay up to date on the forecast -- we'll keep in touch with the latest over the next few days.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in place for the Northern Brazos Valley -- Coverage is expected to be low, but a strong / severe storm cannot be ruled out through midnight.

Cold front arrives early tomorrow morning. What that means for your Tuesday:

Heads up:

Decent chance you'll be woken up by thunder & rain hitting your window overnight.

A line of heavy rain and thunderstorms will arrive from the west and
slide through the Brazos Valley -- most likely between 3am and 6am (HRRR "Future Radar" pictured below)

While most of this activity is expected to be below severe limits -- gusty winds, lightning, thunder, and small hail will be possible.

Storms are confined to the Northern Brazos Valley (as of 6pm) -- a few of which were severe just north of Leon County.

Rain and thunderstorms are expected to accompany a cold front sliding south overnight. More on that & our extended rain chances:
