Plenty of Moisture + Passing Disturbance = Scattered Rain Chance
Plenty of heavy rain and storms in the Gulf of Mexico and south of the Brazos Valley today -- just a few isolated areas of rain locally. Don't lose hope...more rain is possible. High pressure remains centered west of Texas as an area of low pressure is just south of the area off the coast. As a disturbance flings around that low, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible again Wednesday. While a few showers to an isolated storm may drift through between 10am and noon, most activity should come through between lunch and sunset.
Anywhere from a few drops to an 1"+ of rainfall is possible. This rain chance remains uneven -- meaning some could find heavy rain at times, while others may miss out completely. If the rain falls as expected, that could make it hard for some to climb out of the 80s. Rain chance slowly comes down as temperatures steadily trend up into the weekend.
Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of showers. Low: 75. Wind: Calm.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of scattered showers and storms by the afternoon. High: 96. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.
