Damp Start To The Week

This picture above depicts what southeast Texas is expected to look like Monday morning, as you head back to work and school.  It won't mean day-long rain, but more like what we saw today - periods of intermittent sprinkles.  So be prepared for that nuisance rain which will have you tapping your windshield wiper.  Its all part of a weak upper-level disturbance drifting across the state now.  

However, a stronger cold front is expected to move in late Tuesday.  As the front approaches, we could briefly see a period of stronger storms before a big cool down arrives.  When I say big, I mean its the kind of change that will make it feel more like late January in Houston.  Not a bitter blast, but it will replace our near 80° weather with 60s and bring back a chill to the morning.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with periods brief, spotty showers.  Some fog by morning.  Lows in the mid 60s with steady southeast winds 5-10 mph.

MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with periods of intermittent rain.  Highs in the mid to upper 70s with balmy southeast winds 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy with showers and scattered strong thunderstorms by late afternoon.  Morning lows in the mid to upper 60s followed by highs in the mid 70s. Southeast winds 5-10 mph.  Cooler conditions arrive by late evening.
