Rainfall update after Thursday’s storms in the Brazos Valley – KBTX

Brian, Texas (KBTX) – Widespread rain and storms rumbled across the Brazos Valley on Thursday as a weak front moved into southeast Texas. The heaviest rain generally fell along and west of the Navasota River, and even led to some flood warnings before the afternoon drive.

The storms were very strong at times as they marched south, pushing 30-50 mph + wind gusts and generating groups of frequent lightning. A few felled/killed trees were reported in Burleson County, along with some minor roof damage to some barns.

Officially, College Station collected only a quarter of an inch of rain from the event, according to the gauge at Easterwood Airport. The heaviest rain fell in the two cities from Texas Boulevard to the east, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a flood alert until 5 p.m. as water pooled on roads in low and low drainage areas. Caldwell Airport reported 1.52″ of rain after the early afternoon heavy rain flooded the city and caused power outages in parts of the city. This is the largest single-day rainfall on the site since May 28, 2021!

I look ahead

For people who are not yet affected by Thursday’s rain, there are still more chances to be expected over the next week! Scattered rain and storms may drift across parts of the Brazos Valley on Friday, particularly in the late afternoon and early evening, but coverage will likely be less than what we found on Thursday. A few lonely rains this weekend can’t be ruled out before another mass of moisture arrives and chances are boosted again next week!
