.DISCUSSION...
As evident by the limited CU development so far...the airmass over
SE TX has dried out today. Seeing some weak boundaries propagating
into the area from the NE but am not expecting any development for
the rest of the afternoon. This quieter pattern to remain in place
the next couple of days as weak ridging aloft holds over the state.
Any activity we see tomorrow/Tue will likely be with the seabreeze
and mainly during the day.

Our next best rain chances are progged to be Weds/Thur. The break-
down of the upper ridge on Tues should herald the approach/passage
of the upper trof/low around mid-week. This system combined with a
late season cold front will help to produce widespread activity as
these systems appear to meet in SE TX. Models hinting at favorable
jet dynamics and elevated moisture levels during this time frame.
Will keep with high-end chance POPS in the grids for these days.

.MARINE...
Winds/seas over the coastal waters continuing to trend downward as
high pressure continues to build into the region. The light to mod-
erate onshore flow developing tonight is expected to persist on in
to the start of the week. No real change with this pattern is fore-
cast until weeks end with the possibility of a cold front. 41
