The biggest issue will be the drop in temperatures as our high for today is around 70°F with a low in the mid to upper 30s tomorrow morning. After tomorrow we should see our rain chances drop while our temperatures rise through Friday when the next round of storms could develop in region. Based on the current forecasts, we could see between 0.5 to 1.0 inches of rainfall in the lower Brazos River watershed over the next 7 days. The majority of that rainfall is predicted to fall on Friday.
