National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
641 AM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017

If conditions become unrepresentative...contact the National Weather
Service.

.DISCUSSION...
A cold front will cross southeast Texas today. A capping inversion will
limit rain chances with the higher chances toward Lake Livingston.
Drier conditions are expected on Thursday. Onshore winds and higher
humidity levels are expected on Friday and Saturday.

Comments: A cold front will generate showers and isolated thunderstorms
this afternoon. The latest short term guidance is trending more aggressive
with thunderstorm potential in your area. A capping inversion
remains very strong and the current forecast is counting on the cap
holding through the afternoon, limiting rain chances. If the
cap breaks, an isolated strong to severe storm will be possible.
