Kicking off the last full week of May 2022 with cool, rainier skies for the Brazos Valley after weeks of well-above average heat. Lows dip into the middle/upper 60s Monday morning. Areas of morning clouds and fog give way to “cooler” weather in the lower 80s Monday afternoon, a major drop in temps that we’ve seen in recent weeks for the Brazos Valley. An upper low swings a series of disturbances across the United States the next few days. By sunrise Tuesday, a disturbance pulls in ignited storms from far West Texas into the Brazos Valley. Scattered rain activity kicks off commute time Tuesday with heavy downpours and gusty winds in excess of 40 mph+ possible for some. We’ll see a drier Tuesday afternoon before a round of storms moves in from the north overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning. A few heavier thunderstorms could produce heavy downpours, rumbles of thunder, strong winds, and brief hail in the Brazos Valley.
By late Wednesday, a passing disturbance associated with a weak cold front brings one last round of storms into the region. A few stronger storms could produce a wind concern. As these disturbances move through, 1.50″-3.00″ (isolated 4.00″+) will be possible through sunrise Thursday. By late week, that cold front moves a cool, drier air mass in to kickstart Memorial Day Weekend in the Brazos Valley. That’ll end the wet weather, bring back sunshine and breezy south winds (meaning warmer weather).
