Hazardous Weather Outlook

Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
610 AM CDT Sat Jun 24 2017

TXZ214-237-238-251115-
Brazoria-Chambers-Galveston-
610 AM CDT Sat Jun 24 2017

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Southeast Texas..

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Elevated tide levels and wave run up may produce some minor
coastal flooding along the Blue Water Highway, Surfside, and at
the Highway 87 and 124 intersection of the Bolivar Peninsula this
morning near times of high tide. Moderate to strong rip currents
are also possible along area beaches today.

Expect some showers and thunderstorms across the area today. Some
could produce locally heavy rainfall through the early afternoon
hours. Stronger cells will be capable of producing 20 to 40 mph
wind gusts as well.

With a tropical airmass in place, a few funnel clouds are a
possibility. These typically last a few minutes and the vast
majority do not typically reach the ground, but can do minor
damage if they do.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

We will be keeping an eye on water levels around times of high
tides for the next couple days as they could briefly approach
levels needed for minor coastal flooding at the most susceptible
locations.

Fairly good chances of showers and thunderstorms are expected
into midweek. With slow storm motions, some localized heavy
rainfall may be possible.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated at this time.
