.DISCUSSION...An upper level low is over the SW states this
morning with an short wave moving around the larger low and into
Texas. Associated with the short wave over Texas a line of storms
is moving south and east. Models agree that this activity will
mostly move south through this morning, however as the short wave
moves closer to Louisiana scattered storms will be possible by
this afternoon. With a hot and humid air mass in place and a
slight bit of divergence aloft storm coverage should be a little
higher than the past couple of afternoons.

Through mid week the upper low over the desert southwest will very
gradually move south and east. Ahead of the low very weak upper
ridging is expected over the northern gulf coast. This will keep
pops ranging from isolated to low end scattered and mostly diurnal through
Wednesday.

Late in the week and into the weekend, the pattern becomes wetter.
The upper low over the sw states very slowly moves closer and cuts
off while a weak frontal boundary drifts to the coast. This will
provide multiple days of rain again with some possibly being heavy
at times.


&&

.MARINE...Weak high pressure will remain across the coastal waters
through mid week keeping winds light and mainly onshore.
