.DISCUSSION...
A cold front moving across Southeast Texas tonight and reaching
or just pushing off the coast by Monday will result in periods of
showers and a few thunderstorms through Sunday evening. Expect
breezy southerly winds to become westerly and continue to veer to
the northeast behind the front. Chances for wetting rains are
highest along and south of the Highway 59 corridor. Fog will be
possible south of the front tonight with fog potential returning
to the forecast as southerly winds resume on Tuesday.
