Increasing rain chances are forecast across SE Texas by Sunday due to a surge of gulf moisture with even high chances Monday and Tuesday…

Tonight looks warm and humid and Saturday, scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms are forecast across SE Texas. 

Sunday, a surge of gulf moisture will enhance rainfall during the afternoon and evening hours.

Early next week, a July “cold” front will move into SE Texas and bring wet weather to the area.  One to three inches is possible.  This will also keep afternoon temperatures down.

The front is then forecast to move out into the coastal waters.  Northerly winds Wednesday will bring a drier air mass into SE Texas.  By Thursday Morning, low temperatures may fall into the middle to upper 60s…several degrees below normal.

Lower humidity is expected Thursday and it may feel pretty nice across the area for this time of year.

Showers return to the forecast next Friday as southerly winds return to the area.
