A developing storm system in the southwestern states will lift to the northeast, sending Pacific moisture into south Texas as low level moisture increases. Rain will develop late Tuesday night and become likely Wednesday with moderate rain at times. Rain will gradually end Thursday morning as drier air moves in behind the storm system. Rainfall amounts will be highest along the coast and in our southern counties. Overall totals through Thursday morning are expected to come in at .75" to 1.25" inland and 1.5" to 3.0" at the coast and south. We'll be cool Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the lower 60s.
