LINGERING SURFACE BOUNDARIES ALONG WITH DAYTIME HEATING IN THIS
UNSTABLE AIRMASS ALREADY OVER THE REGION WILL LEAD TO SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS MUCH OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS THIS
AFTERNOON. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL COULD DEVELOP IN THE SLOWER
MOVING STORMS OR WHERE ANY TRAINING SETS UP...AND THIS COULD LEAD
TO SOME LOCALIZED FLOODING ESPECIALLY AT LOCATIONS THAT HAVE

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD RETURN TO THE AREA
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY MOVING IN FROM THE

PRODUCE STORMS. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE IN THE SLOWER
MOVING STORMS OR WHERE ANY TRAINING SETS UP. IF SO...FLOODING IS
POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY AT LOCATIONS THAT HAVE SATURATED GROUNDS.

A HIGHER THAN NORMAL RISK OF RIP CURRENTS IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP
