Heavy rain will continue in northeast Texas through Wednesday as the circulation with Imelda tracks slowly north. A total of 6-12 inches of rain is expected in the path of Imelda with flash flooding a concern. Here in the Coastal Bend, we are on the dry side of the circulation and except for some isolated showers or t-storms, it looks mainly dry. As the onshore flow increases Thursday, our southeast winds will return and sea breeze showers will be possible in the afternoon but will still be isolated. Temperatures will continue to be hot, coming in slightly above average through early next week.

Tuesday night: Partly cloudy with an isolated shower chance. Lows will drop into the low to mid 70s inland and upper 70s to near 80 at the beaches with light south to southwest winds.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with an isolated shower chance and highs in the mid to upper 90s inland and near 90 at the beaches. Winds will come in from the south-southwest up to 15 mph and afternoon heat indices will reach up to 105 degrees.

Thursday: Partly cloudy with isolated afternoon showers or t-storms possible and highs in the mid 90s inland to the upper 80s to near 90 at the beaches and southeast winds at 12-20 mph.
