HOLDING IN THE LOW TO MID 70S. THE UPPER LEVEL LOW THAT DROPPED
INTO SOUTH TEXAS OVER THE WEEKEND IS NOW ALONG THE UPPER TEXAS

THE UPPER LEVEL LOW IS EXPECTED TO MIGRATE BACK TO THE WEST BEFORE

THE REGION AND THE CHANCES OF RAINS WILL CONTINUE INTO THE

IS A WELCOME RELIEF FROM TEMPERATURES AT THE BEGINNING OF LAST
