Short answer is no. In fact it has gone down. It is higher than usual, but not a "flood." Here's a better site:
National Weather Service Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service

It's at 33' down from forty something. Expected to go back up to forty something, probably based on continued rain upstream. Pretty cool site. But no one can predict exactly what will happen. "Flood" is like 50' according to this site.

Oh and the site above was particular to Richmond. Conditions vary up and down stream obviously. You can navigate around and check it out if you want. I found it the other day because I was wondering the same thing since the river was relatively high.

the brazos is very full however...take a trip over down 59 south, over the grand parkway between 59 and new territory blvd, 1-10 between Brookshire and San Felipe, 1093 in FM 1489 in Wallis or FM 723 in Rosenberg, which all cross over the brazos and you will see for yourself....

Yes it's relatively "full." But it's been low for a while. As long as no property being affected, probably not "flood" conditions. If you aren't in floodplain you'll probably be fine. I drive by it on 59 almost every day. It's high, but a LONG way from the levees still. There are areas, however, that are further from 59 and in the floodplain w/out levees.
