southeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected today. A brief period of heavy
rain and frequent lightning will be the main threats.

the low will track east of the area, keeping the bulk of heavy
rainfall across the north central or northeast Gulf coast.
Scattered to perhaps numerous showers and thunderstorms will still
be possible, with stronger storms producing gusty winds along
with frequent cloud to ground lightning and very heavy rainfall.

Please continue to closely monitor the forecast for the weekend
into early next week.
