.DISCUSSION...
Stabilizing effects of earlier convection appeared too much for a
repeat of Saturday, as tstm coverage is quite a bit less this
afternoon. That being said, we can still expect scattered showers
and tstms this evening as weak cold front remains stalled
across/near the upper TX coast with moderate instability on either
side of the boundary. Rich moisture and residual surface
front/boundaries will remain in place Monday. Thus, expect a good
chance of mainly diurnal showers and thunderstorms once again
tomorrow. Brief, heavy downpours and possibly funnel clouds/water
spouts along sea breeze will be primary threats from these slow
moving storms. Plus side of the rain chances and clouds is keeping
temps down a bit from normal.

Overall, pattern changes very little through the week, although
there should be some drying taking place through the column and
front will likely erode by mid week. This will bring a return to
`typical` summer-like conditions for most of the work week, with
high temps back into the lower 90s by the end of the week away
from the immediate coast.

.MARINE...
Little change to overall marine forecast, with periods of showers
and thunderstorms possible across the coastal waters through the
upcoming week. Where any residual boundaries set up along the coast
early this week and with deep tropical moisture in place, cannot
rule out a brief waterspout threat (mainly during the morning
hours). Light east to southeast flow is expected to persist through
mid-week with lee cyclogenesis over the High Plains allowing these
winds (and waves in response) to increase enough to warrant caution
or possibly advisory flags mid to late this week. Otherwise,
continued east to southeast flow will promote tide levels around 1-
1.5 feet above normal.
