Week Starts Wet

After a weekend that featured cool mornings and evenings with fairly mild afternoons, a change is on the way to start the week.  The graphic above depicts a forecast for rain on Monday, developing as early as the morning rush hour.  So get the rain gear ready; it'll be a soggy day.  Some of the storms may become a bit stronger north of Houston, but most of what we'll see here in town will be general rain showers with an occasional rumble of thunder.

Late this Sunday afternoon, clouds began appearing along the coast in response to increased southerly winds. That wind shift occurs ahead of the front triggering Monday's rain.  Expect a few cool days after the front, followed by a stronger storm system bringing an increased threat of severe weather by Thursday.

TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy with spotty, brief showers developing by sunrise.  Temperatures slowly fall through the mid 60s to only the low 60s by morning.  Breezy southerly winds 10-15 mph.

MONDAY: Cloudy with scattered morning showers and some thunderstorms developing by afternoon.  Milder with temperatures in the mid 70s.  Early southerly winds 10-15 mph becoming northwesterly 15-20 mph by late evening.

TUESDAY: Cool start with temperatures starting in the upper 40s and only slowly rising to the mid 60.  Lingering morning clouds give way to some sunshine by afternoon.  Brisk north winds 10-15 mph.
