and a weak upper level disturbance will contribute to scattered to

thunderstorms will remain in the forecast tonight through Thursday.
Onshore flow will increase to moderate to occasionally strong
Thursday as an area of low pressure develops over West Texas.
Rain chances will decrease by Friday as drier air slowly works
