A weak area of low pressure is spinning in the northwest Gulf with tropical moisture wrapping into the system. As this low moves to the west-northwest, rainfall will be more widespread up the coast into northeastern Texas while the Coastal Bend will be on the edge of the rainfall and on the backside of the system. Showers and t-storms are expected to become widely scattered Tuesday as the low gets closer with coastal areas seeing the best chance of rain. Some areas will be missed by the rain while other areas could see heavy downpours. As the low moves inland, the air will dry out and our rain chances will drop from Thursday into the weekend with only isolated shower chances. Temperatures will be typical for mid September as we head through the week.

Monday Night: Partly cloudy with a chance of coastal showers toward morning and lows in the low to mid 70s inland and upper 70s at the beaches.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy with widely scattered showers and t-storms with the best chance at the coast in the morning and spotty storms inland in the afternoon. Highs will reach the low to mid 90s inland and upper 80s at the beaches with northeast to east winds to 15 mph.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with a chance of showers and t-storms. Highs will reach the lower 90s inland and mid to upper 80s at the beaches.
