A healthy supply of tropical moisture won out over the weekend and promises to keep flowing for the first half of the work week. The water spouts where also out again Sunday evening with this spout spotted near the causeway. Galveston has officially received over  2.0" of rain since Saturday.

The wind and rain was also flying in Bermuda this weekend. Hurricane Igor passed just West of the tiny island of Bermuda.  Top winds where 75mph with gust to 93mph. The storm was rated a category one  just before landfall. Since the dirty side of the storm passed overhead you can see the fierce wind driven white caps Igor blew into town. Today and for most of the weekend the leftovers of another storm that moved into Mexico. . .Karl, will likely keep the rain coming until at least Wednesday. After that slightly drier air will keep rain chances lower at about 30% until the beginning of the weekend. An approaching cool front will once again draw tropical moisture in by the weekend elevating our chances for precipitation.

Microcast forecast shows scattered rain Tuesday with rain cooled overnight lows in the low 70s and highs in the upper 80s.

Can't wait for a real cold front to blow into town with the official first day of fall this Wednesday. I'll blog about the possibility of 50 degree nights returning to Houston tomorrow.
