We keep rain chances rather high this week as we have many weather features interacting together this week. For this Monday, we are starting off with some light showers and temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. The first half of the day will stay relatively quiet--just some light rain--with a chance for some scattered storms this afternoon. The best chance for storms will be along and east of I-35. We really shouldn't see severe weather today but that will likely be changing for Tuesday. 

As a cold front moves in on Tuesday's storms could produce heavy rain, large hail, strong winds, and maybe a tornado or two. The tornado potential looks low at this time. Wednesday should give us a nice break for most of the day, until the evening. That's when our rain chances ramp up again and will stay high through Thursday. Flooding could be an issue by the end of the week, so we will have to watch that closely. 

What to expect this week: 

Monday: Morning showers, afternoon scattered storms. Severe threat, low.
Tuesday: Morning drizzle, afternoon strong to severe storms. Large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain main concerns. Tornado potential low, but not zero. 
Wednesday: Most of the day should be quiet. Rain chances increase overnight. Rain could be heavy. 
Thursday: Rain chances are rather high. Biggest concern will be flooding with heavy rain continuing. We could see multiple inches.
Friday: Our chances start to go down. Could see a few showers and storms, mainly SE into the Brazos Valley.
