Weekly Brazos River Outlook – Sept 20, 2021

The Brazos River in Richmond is at Gage Elevation 9.46 feet. We are expecting a slight increase in the Brazos River through Fort Bend County due to upstream rainfall/releases.  Based on the current forecast, no flooding due to the Brazos River through Fort Bend County is anticipated.  We have increased rain chances tomorrow as our first Fall cool/cold front works its way through the region. The remainder of the week should include cooler, drier conditions. The 7-Day Quantitative Precipitation Forecast (QPF) is showing the lower Brazos River Watershed receiving less than ½ inch of rain over the next 7 days. The National Hurricane Center is watching several storms and disturbances in the Atlantic, but there are no current threats included in the forecast for southeast Texas.
