AN UNUSUALLY PLEASANT JULY AFTERNOON ACROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS WITH
PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES AND TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 70S TO
LOW 80S. A FEW SHOWERS HAVE DEVELOPED ALONG THE COAST NEAR
PALACIOS BUT OTHERWISE CONVECTION HAS REMAINED NEAR THE BOUNDARY
OFFSHORE. A FEW MORE SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE COAST THROUGH
EARLY EVENING BUT INLAND AREAS SHOULD REMAIN DRY.

RAIN CHANCES WILL TAPER OFF BEGINNING TOMORROW AS THE UPPER LEVEL
RIDGE CENTERED OVER NEW MEXICO STRENGTHENS AND MOVES EASTWARD.
HIGHS SUNDAY AND MONDAY WILL REBOUND QUICKLY INTO THE LOW TO MID
90S BUT THE GREATER CONCERN WILL BE APPARENT TEMPERATURES.
ABUNDANT LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL ALLOW AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX VALUES
TO EXCEED 100 DEGREES ACROSS MOST OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS SUNDAY
THROUGH TUESDAY. SOME SLIGHT RELIEF ARRIVES ON WEDNESDAY AS AN
INVERTED UPPER TROUGH MOVES UNDER THE RIDGE BRINGING SLIGHTLY
COOLER TEMPERATURES AND ;HIGHER RAIN CHANCES. THE UPPER RIDGE
WILL REESTABLISH ITSELF OVER THE AREA BY LATE WEEK ALLOWING FOR
WARMER TEMPERATURES BY NEXT WEEKEND. 38
