.DISCUSSION...
Cloudy skies today as most of the storms have remained offshore
from the south Texas coast into the Louisiana coastal waters.
Storms are getting support from a series of shortwaves lifting out
of Texas and across Louisiana. That combined with the normal
diurnal heating and tapped moisture from the boundary back to the
west has setup the conditions for storms from the south texas
coast into Louisiana. A secondary front is expected to drop down
into the the northwest gulf before falling apart on Wednesday.
This will help to hold the moisture in place on southerly winds.

As a result aftn temps will be somewhat cooler due in part to the
rain cooled air and clouds... over night lows will also trend a
bit cooler. As this pattern will hold through the rest of the week
we are looking at an additional two to four inches through this
period with once again some locations getting a bit more.
