.DISCUSSION...
Showers and thunderstorms will continue across the region through
the afternoon. Strong winds and pea sized hail are possible with
the strongest storms this afternoon. The upper level disturbance
that has helped fuel the rounds of stronger thunderstorms the past
several days will diminish and move farther east. In its wake, an
upper level ridge will push into the area from the southwest as
surface high pressure builds in from the northeast. These will
both cause our forecast to become progressively warmer and drier
leading into Memorial Day Weekend. At this time, it appears that
midweek next week could approach record high temperatures. A
summary of record high maximum daily temperatures and record high
minimum daily temperatures is included in the climate section
below.

The low pressure system currently over the eastern Yucatan
Peninsula has been given a 70% chance of development into a
Tropical Depression over the next two days. With tropical
development likely, it is always wise to make sure you have your
severe weather preparedness kit ready. Although this system is
forecast to progress into the Eastern Gulf with minimal, if any,
impacts to SE Texas, it is important to be prepared. 22

.MARINE...
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the end
of the week. Light to moderate southerly winds along with low seas
of 3 feet or less will continue through the end of the week. Light
southwest to west winds and decreasing rain coverage are anticipated
over the weekend and on into the first half of next week.

Boaters with interests in the central and eastern Gulf of Mexico
should monitor the forecasts for possible storm formation at the
end of the week and on into the weekend. At this time, no impacts
are expected other than maybe higher seas if a subtropical or
tropical system forms.  42
