Rainy start to next week

Posted at 4:56 PM, Jun 14, 2018

While moisture is increasing, we’ll only see isolated showers through Saturday as the bulk of tropical moisture stays offshore. By Sunday and the start of next week, higher levels of moisture will bring a greater chance of rain.

Friday and Saturday: Isolated showers

Moisture has been increasing and high pressure has shifted to the north of our area, which has led to isolated showers in the morning and along the sea breeze during the afternoon.

This trend will continue on Friday and Saturday, but the rain is not expected to be widespread. Brief downpours will give the ground a taste of what is to come for Father’s Day and the start of next week.

Sunday: Deep tropical moisture arrives

Sunday is Dad’s day, but it’s also when the deep surge of tropical moisture is expected to move into the Coastal Bend. Scattered areas of rain are expected to develop; however, the main event looks to hold off until Monday and Tuesday.

Monday and Tuesday: Heavy rain possible

More scattered to even numerous rain is in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday. The very high moisture content of the atmosphere will allow some of this rain to be heavy at times. An important point to note is that the rainfall totals are likely to be patchy in nature. There are likely to be some spots that see very high rainfall totals, while others barely see any rain at all.
