.DISCUSSION...
A couple of thunderstorms over the city at 3 pm with showers
moving into the nearshore waters and dotting the seabreeze. Rain
chances remaining fairly slim through Monday morning mainly
associated with the coastal waters (showers) and seabreeze into
the south and southeastern areas. Upper ridge weakening overhead
and shifting west through the weekend. Monday into Tuesday upper
trough dropping southeastward through the Plains deepens and
eventually pushes a cold (but not very) front into SETX Wednesday
or Thursday next week. This should give most of the area a better
chance of much needed rainfall.

Afternoon temperatures this week still hovering around normal to
just slightly above normal with well above normal mins. Heat index
readings will spend the afternoon hours in the 100-106 degree
range most of the week though a spotty 107 or 108 may be possible
Thursday or Friday.

.MARINE...
Look for light to moderate onshore flow to continue at least into
the weekend. Winds may start to edge towards the edge of SCEC
criteria at times overnight, but at this time wind speeds are
largely expected to stay below 15 knots. Similarly, look for seas of
2-3 feet and tides that are a few inches above astronomical
expectations.
