.DISCUSSION...
Areas of fog around southeast Texas and southern Louisiana
including the lakes and bays through sunrise as temperatures
have settled into the 40s. A surface low with a trailing cold
front is beginning to move out of eastern New Mexico into North
Texas. NWS radars are depicting rains that transition over to
showers and isolated thunderstorms to our northwest attm. Light
rains have already begun to move into southeast Texas lakes
region.

For today... look for showers and isolated thunderstorms into the
afternoon and evening hours as temperatures will struggle to
reach the upper 50s to lower 60s. The surface low is expected to
move into swrn Louisiana during the early morning hours tmrw. As
this develops winds will swing around to the northwest with
precipitation transitioning back to rains... ending before
sunrise.

Weather issues... we remain in a progressive pattern... that
means we are expecting a short break from the rains during the
day tomorrow. Temperatures though will be a bit cooler.

By Thursday into Friday another system is expected to begin to
effect the weather with the return of still more rains. This will
see another front during the day on Friday. Look for temperatures
cooling into the upper 30s across the lakes region in southeast
Texas and into central Louisiana by sunrise Saturday with temps
near 40 for the I-10 corridor. The good news remains the weekend
looks to finally bring us a break from the rains.

.Marine...
In the coastal waters tomorrow looking at winds around 15 to 20
knots in the lakes and bays and 20 knots in the coastal waters. A
Small Craft Advisory will likely be needed through the day on
Wednesday. Seas will build as the winds increase. Winds are
expected to taper off rather fast during the late afternoon hours
as high pressure settles in.
