Look to the south for a pretty clear pass. It should be directly overhead at 6:03.

It didn't seem to come from the South. Or I maybe I was just twisted around.

depending on where you are, it's going to be pretty tough to see this evening at a max height of 16-17deg, but tomorrow looks good..

I'm terrible at this stuff. I think I saw it, though. Blinking bright light. Peeking through the clouds.

The chart says 6:51pm in College Station? The previous times I have spotted it, the ISS doesn't blink.

Good grief. I told you I suck at this. Well, another opportunity coming up.

Edit - I appreciate your grace in pointing out the err of my ways....thank you.

You're welcome. We're you able to see it? I got busy around the house and missed going outside to look up.

I don't know. I looked towards the WNW and figured it would go from that direction to the N, but I didn't see anything.

I did see something going from the N towards the moon. I'm embarrassed to ask if that was it. Lol. Steady and faint. But I feel like it was going on the opposite direction from I thought it should be.
