Numerous Showers and thunderstorms will produce a real flood threat to low lying areas especially near the coast beginning Thursday night.  This is being caused by a huge influx of Gulf and Pacific moisture that will continue over South Texas as a weak late season cold front approaches. An upper level disturbance will move over the area and the front resulting in numerous showers and thunderstorms with locally heavy rain. As the front stalls just to our south more thundershowers will occur in South into the middle of next week. Total accumulations in the Coastal Bend on average will be 2-5 inches over the next 5 days with isolated higher amounts. 

Thursday will be mainly cloudy with  only a few peaks of sunshine less wind and only  an isolated shower warm and sticky with a high of 87. 

Thursday night and early Friday rain is likely and locally heavy with a low of 69. 

Friday will be cloudy and cooler with rain likely and locally heavy in the morning then tapering off in the afternoon and a high of only 77. 

More heavy rain expected on Friday night and Saturday morning.

 

Turn around don’t drown.
