Duck and Dodge The Rain
Keep the umbrella handy today and for the next few days as periodic bouts of rain are expected across Southeast Texas. The above depicts widely scattered showers and thunderstorms developing during the afternoon today.
As is often the case, the key is the word "widely". Many may not see much rain at all, while others could experience brief, heavy downpour. Southeast winds bring an abundant flow of moist air in from the Gulf. Today's rains will be triggered by weak upper-air disturbance. Once it passes, the rest of the week's rains will happen sporadically in the humid air.
Bottom line: keep the umbrella handy in case you are caught in one of those brief downpours.
