.DISCUSSION...
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are continuing to work their
way through SE Texas this afternoon but should diminish later this
evening. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are
forecast once again tomorrow, with the greatest chances over the
eastern zones. A few strong to marginally severe thunderstorms
will be possible tomorrow afternoon.

Shower and thunderstorm activity will really begin to ramp up on
Tuesday as a frontal boundary sinks southwestward towards SE
Texas and stalls overhead. The greatest chances for showers and
thunderstorms are currently forecast for Tuesday afternoon,
however this system will keep 30% to 50% PoPs over much of SE
Texas through Wednesday evening before shifting into the Gulf
Wednesday night. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms
return both Thursday and Friday afternoons. Drier conditions are
forecast Saturday and Sunday as high pressure moves in overhead.

High temperatures are forecast near climatology all week,
generally ranging from the upper 80s near the coast to the low/mid
90s inland. Heat index values are expected in the low/mid 100s
each afternoon. 11

.MARINE...
A light and mainly onshore flow will continue through Tuesday. A weak cold
front will approach the coast Tuesday night and then stall before becoming
diffuse. An onshore flow will eventually redevelop on Thursday but will not begin
to strengthen until Saturday as low pressure over W TX begins to deepen. High pressure
over the eastern gulf will remain in place and onshore winds are expected through
the Fourth of July holiday weekend. No flags are expected through next weekend. Tide
levels will remain around a foot above normal through Monday
evening. 43
