Forecast Discussion:
Memorial Day brings a conditional (not guaranteed) chance for showers, thunderstorms on a scattered-basis throughout the day in the Brazos Valley. An wobbly rainmaker will swirl around South Texas, feeding a chance for added rains for the holiday. With this rainmaker away, it’ll keep the highest potential for rainfall and flooding concerns well southwest of the Brazos Valley (running from San Antonio to the mid-Texas coast). Regardless, scattered rain activity to a few non-severe storms are possible for a select few anyways for the Brazos Valley, while many remain dry through the day. The heaviest of storms could produce heavy downpours, gusty winds, and lightning for 30min.-1hr, delaying any outdoor plans for a bit. Severe weather isn’t intended, but the NWSSPC places the area under a 1 out of 5 risk for “Excessive Rainfall.” These storms could become stationary (or move little anyways), allowing for street ponding and low-lying flooding concerns. Overall, don’t cancel any outdoor plans, but remain weather aware.

This same weather maker will bring another chance for scattered rain on Tuesday afternoon. As like Monday, not everyone sees rain, but those that do can expect slagging, heavy rain. Otherwise, mornings in the middle 60s turn to a few degrees shy of the 90° mark through the last day of May 2023 (Wed.). By the first few days of June, highs run in the lower 90s Thursday and Friday. By the upcoming weekend, rain could be back in the forecast.

5-Day Weather Outlook:
Memorial Day: High 85. Low 66. Mostly Cloudy. 30% Chance/Rain.
Tuesday: High 86. Low 65. Mostly Sunny. 20% Chance/Rain.
Wednesday: High 87. Low 66. Sunny.
