Monday's Weather: Scattered showers with highs in the mid to upper 80s

Scattered showers and a few storms will continue for the start of the work week, with heavy rain moving in in the next few days.

Moisture will continue to stream in from the Gulf, keeping showers in the region for our Monday. These showers will bring off and on rain throughout the day, with rain totals up to about 0.50" by midnight.

An area of low pressure continues to build over the Gulf of Mexico. As this low treks through that warm water, heading toward Texas, the National Hurricane Center says there is an 80% chance of tropical cyclone formation in the next 48 hours.

Models indicate that this low will move onto the Texas coast, between Houston and Brownsville early Tuesday morning.

This disturbance, whether it develops further or not, will bring even more rain, heavy at times, to East Texas Tuesday through Thursday. With most East Texas rivers, creeks, streams, and lakes already at full capacity, any additional rainfall could bring flash flooding. East Texas could see 3-5" of rain by the end of the week.

We'll continue to monitor this system and keep you updated with timing and impacts.

By mid to late week, that disturbance will move to the northeast, exiting the region. Expect partly cloudy skies as we start next weekend. Highs will rebound back into the low 90s by then.
