THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND MOVE
INLAND TODAY AS DEEP MOISTURE ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK TROPICAL WAVE
MOVES IN FROM THE GULF. STORM COVERAGE SHOULD INCREASE OVER
CENTRAL LOCATIONS THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS WITH
DAYTIME HEATING. RAINFALL TOTALS SHOULD AVERAGE FROM ONE HALF TO
ONE INCH WITH ISOLATED TOTALS FROM 3 TO 4 INCHES AREAS WHERE
STORMS TRAIN.

IN ADDITION...GIVEN THE TROPICAL AIRMASS IN PLACE...WE COULD ALSO
SEE ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS THAT MAY BE FAVORABLE FOR FUNNEL
CLOUDS AND OR WATERSPOUTS. THESE TYPICALLY OCCUR DURING THE
MORNING THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS. THE FUNNELS RARELY EXTEND
ALL THE WAY TO THE SURFACE BUT CAN PRODUCE MINOR DAMAGE IF THEY
DO. MARINERS SHOULD REMAIN CLEAR OF WATERSPOUTS AS THEY CAN
PRODUCE WINDS IN EXCESS OF 40 KNOTS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED FRIDAY THROUGH
THE WEEKEND. OTHERWISE NO HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS EXPECTED AT THIS
TIME.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
