Throughout the rest of the week, the rain chances will stick around, with the best chances being on Tuesday. Lows tonight should stay around the low 70s.
TROPICAL OUTLOOK: Disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico are associated with a mid-level area of low pressure interacting with a surface trough located near the Texas coast. However, depending on how much rain we get on Monday, the rainfall totals of Tuesday through Thursday could start to be a problem.
We'll see highs only in the upper 80s as the rain and cloud cover keep things a little cooler. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. Although we may see scattered storms Monday and Tuesday, no severe weather is expected, but storms will bring the threat of frequent lightning. The large, stationary band of rain that's been aimed at Beaumont the past two days partially shielded us from the flooding rains observed in the Golden Triangle and Corpus Christi.
This weekend looks to be pretty nice with lots of sunshine and temperatures in the lower 90s and heat indices pushing the century mark once again.
Rains taper off starting Thursday. The European model is showing some 3 inch amounts across deep east Texas. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect just to our south (including most of the Texas coast line) though none of us in the area are under that watch. "At the same time, rainfall rates will increase and may exceed 1" per hour.
