Rain and thunderstorms are likely through the overnight across Deep South Texas. A few isolated storms may reach strong to severe levels with the greater risk concentrated across sections of Zapata and Jim Hogg county. These storms could produce wind gusts to 70 mph, large hail, frequent lightning, and locally heavy rainfall. Storms will push off the coast into the pre-dawn hours of Monday. Overnight temperatures are expected to remain in the 60s to near 70 degrees. Be prepared! Move your car into a garage or under a carport, bring inside or fasten down lightweight objects and have the NOAA weather radio set on alert mode.
Hazardous conditions are expected as well across the Lower Texas Gulf Waters for tonight and through the overnight. For the beginning half of the night, a Small Craft Advisory is in effect through midnight for elevated southeasterly winds and seas of 4 to 6 feet. Small craft should exercise caution on the Laguna Madre as well. For the overnight, expect hazardous weather with the threat for thunderstorms, which could be strong. Frequent cloud to water lightning, wind gusts up to storm force and torrential rain with visibility at times falling to below 1 nautical mile may all be possible with these storms.
Shower and thunderstorm chances continue on Monday, with the best chances Monday morning, generally east of Highway 281. A few showers will be possible on Tuesday before drier air moves in ending rain chances for the work week. Benign weather will follow until a dry front arrives late Friday.
