A strong cold front is set to pass through Texas and the Brazos Valley on Monday, bringing the potential for severe storms. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a low risk for isolated strong-to-severe storms in the area, with a slightly higher risk on the east side. The primary threats associated with these storms are large hail and locally damaging wind gusts, with the possibility of a tornado threat further east.
The timing of the storms is expected to be in the morning, with rain and a few thunderstorms possible as early as 7 am to 9 am. This initial activity may produce heavy rain, small hail, wind gusts, and lightning. Later in the day, stronger storms may form along or east of I-45.
Residents are advised to stay informed about the latest weather updates and to prepare for the possibility of severe weather. It is recommended to download a weather app, such as the KBTX Pinpoint Weather App, to receive alerts as they are issued.
Overall, Monday is expected to start off fine, with temperatures rising throughout the day. However, as the cold front approaches, the potential for severe storms increases.
