Increasing clouds overnight; spotty rain develops Sunday
Holding onto cooler than normal temperatures
- Clouds build in overnight
- Rain chances increase late Sunday
- Soggy pattern to start the work week
Overnight we stay dry with an increase in cloud cover. Overnight lows will be slightly warmer than this morning in the 50s and low 60s. We won’t be completely dry to close out the weekend as some spotty rain develops Sunday afternoon and evening.
Right now looks like rain chances will increase Sunday night and into Monday morning. Isolated heavy downpours are possible, but severe weather isn’t likely to close out the weekend.
UNSETTLED TO START THE WEEK
We’re expecting more widespread showers and with some storms possible Monday. An isolated strong or severe storm is possible Monday if everything lines up. Right now the biggest threats are heavy downpours and strong winds. Rainfall rates should be in the .50 to 1 inch range on Monday. Temperatures on Monday will be much cooler than normal in the 70s for most.
The forecast for most of the first half of the week remains similar with daily scattered shower chances. The severe risk looks low thanks to the cooler than average temperatures in the 70s and low 80s. However, light steering winds will barely push the storms along, leading to slow-moving downpours and the risk of heavy rainfall.
By Thursday we will start to see limited rain chances and temperatures gradually warming back up.
TRACKING THE TROPICS
The National Hurricane Center has a low chance of cyclone formation in the Gulf. Regardless of development heavy rainfall is expected in Texas.
