The area of low pressure over the Western Gulf of Mexico approaches and moves over South Texas this weekend. Beneficial rainfall is expected as showers and thunderstorms increase with the approach of this moisture laden system. Rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches is forecast with locally higher amounts are possible, especially within slow moving heavier thunderstorms. Make sure to pay close attention to rapidly changing conditions and avoid flooded roadways.
The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor a weak area of low pressure along a trough of low pressure over the Western Gulf of Mexico. This system is forecast to approach the Texas coast Saturday and move inland across South Texas Sunday with only slight strengthening. The NHC continues with a low a 10% chance of this system developing into a Tropical Depression . The primary threat from this system will be heavy rainfall and poor marine conditions.
Deepening tropical moisture and the approach of a disturbance in the middle layers of the atmosphere will produce isolated showers and thunderstorms inland tonight, and a broader coverage of them over the lower Texas coastal waters. Mariners can expect light winds and low seas.
Rainfall chances continue through the upcoming workweek, though best chances will occur on Saturday and Sunday. As the rain chances decrease at the start of next week, temperatures warm back up to near seasonal averages by midweek.
