Scattered showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast through Wednesday as deep tropical moisture combines with a few disturbances across South and Central Texas this week.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible today across the region. Timing the storms will be difficult. We could see morning storms if they move into the area from West Texas overnight. During the afternoon, daytime heating may trigger storms once again. Highs warm into the middle and upper 80s. Southeast winds average 10 to 15 mph, except gusty near any storms that develop.

Any storms that develop could produce locally heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, wind gusts to 50 mph and small hail.

Scattered thunderstorms remain in the forecast tonight with low temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Southeast winds continue at 10 to 15 mph, except gusty near any storms that develop.

Wednesday may be wetter than today. Models disagree on the evolution of a tropical wave and a few disturbances across our area.

I will mention scattered thunderstorms, some possibly severe Wednesday. Locally heavy rainfall may also occur. Highs top out in the lower to middle 80s. It could be warmer if sunshine prevails.

Rain chances should drop off Thursday, but stray storms remain possible with highs in the upper 80’s to near 90 degrees. Winds briefly become west at 10 to 15 mph Thursday.
