A FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THIS AFTERNOON.....
Despite a Flood Watch across most of the Brazos Valley, it does not mean that everyone will see heavy rain. This is watch is mainly for localized areas, rather than a widespread event.
Our atmosphere is filled up with a lot of moisture, and it will not take much instability to build up cells that could dump heavy amounts of rain over the same location for an extended period of time. Cells will be scattered and will move very slowly. Therefore, not everyone will have rain at the same time. However, in just a short period of time, if you do experience a downpour, as much as 1-3 inches of rain could fall, hence the Flood Watch.
As far as timing, heaviest rain will occure this afternoon and evening. Lingering showers will continue through Friday and settle down this weekend. Overall rain totals across the Brazos Valley will range between 1-3 inches on average, with localized higher amounts.
If you do see water covering any road at any time, make sure to turn around and take an alternative route. It does not take much water to stall your car.
Keep your umbrellas handy!
