A tropical disturbance in the far eastern Gulf of Mexico will move fairly quickly off to the west-northwest and could strengthen into a tropical depression or a minimal tropical storm before going inland along the upper Texas coast late Friday.

Once inland, the system will stall, and that's when our rainfall will pick up significantly and be locally heavy. Until then expect light winds and lots of heat with only a stray shower.

Tonight, expect fair skies, nearly calm and quiet after midnight, and warm and sticky, with a low of 76.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny again, with only a stray shower and stifling hot, with a high of 96.

Wednesday night will be tranquil, with mainly clear skies and a low of 75.

Thursday, expect sunny skies and scorching hot temperatires with a high of 97 and generally light winds until our late afternoon sea breeze.

There is still some uncertainty in the forecast Friday and over the weekend. So make sure you stay tuned and get the facts and don't listen to fiction.
