THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

LIGHT WINDS AND DEEPENING GULF MOISTURE WILL PROVIDE AN
ENVIRONMENT SOMEWHAT CONDUCIVE FOR ISOLATED FUNNELS THROUGH EARLY
AFTERNOON CLOSER TO THE COAST. THESE ARE COMMON IN TROPICAL
AIRMASSES AND RARELY EXTEND ALL THE WAY TO THE SURFACE...BUT CAN
CAUSE MINOR DAMAGE IF THEY DO.

ALONG A FRONTAL BOUNDARY MOVING IN FROM NORTH TEXAS COLLIDES WITH
ACTIVITY MOVING NORTHWARD FROM THE GULF AND SEABREEZE. WHERE THIS
OCCURS...SEVERAL INCHES OF RAIN COULD FALL IN A SHORT PERIOD OF
TIME AND STORMS COULD BRIEFLY PULSE UP TO STRONG TO SEVERE LEVELS.
AT THIS TIME IT APPEARS THE MOST FAVORABLE AREA FOR THIS SITUATION
TO OCCUR COULD BE ALONG OR NORTH OF A LINE FROM COLUMBUS TO CONROE
TO LIVINGSTON BETWEEN 5 AND 10 PM. RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL GENERALLY
BE 1/2 INCH OR LESS...BUT LOCALIZED 3 TO 4 INCH TOTALS WILL BE A
POSSIBILITY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

NO HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS EXPECTED AT THIS TIME. WE WILL BE
MONITORING THE PROGRESS OF ANOTHER EASTERLY WAVE FORECAST TO MOVE
WESTWARD ACROSS THE GULF THIS WEEKEND AND EARLY NEXT WEEK.
