Firefighters will have another tough day with windy, hot and dry conditions across southeast Texas Monday. Winds will gust to 30mph and relative humidity values may drop as low as 30% this afternoon. However, rain chances are on the horizon.
Tropical moisture will surge into the area tonight and bring widespread rain chances Tuesday through Thursday. I expect to see lots of 1/4" to 1/2" rain reports with some areas getting several inches of rain through the week.. A front will stall in north Texas Tuesday afternoon. This may be the focus for thunderstorms to form and ride into southeast Texas Tuesday night and again Wednesday.
Anyway you slice it, the next three days will give us the best rain chance we've had in months.
