Forecast Discussion: The cold front that moved in overnight is starting to move north as a warm front and is currently located near the southern border of Brazos County bringing with it warm temperatures and moisture.  Showers and thunderstorms are currently located to our north and west due to a series of upper level disturbances moving through. Brazos County is under a tornado watch until 9pm. Depending on what happens with the storm systems tonight, the front may move back south overnight before attempting to move back north tomorrow, increasing our chance of showers and thunderstorms. A strong cold front will move through Brazos County by Friday evening, bringing sunny skies and cooler temperatures for the weekend.
