With many activities and personnel off this week for the holiday,
Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to occur today through Tuesday night as a weak area of low pressure with tropical moisture moves from east to west across the region. There is little change in thinking from the prior briefings with regards to the “marginal risk” of excessive rainfall and forecast rainfall amounts. The low pressure system and deeper tropical moisture are expected to be over Texas on Wednesday the 4th, so our region is expected to return to a more typical summer pattern with scattered mainly afternoon showers and thunderstorms, so the rainfall graphic attached below is 48 hour rainfall today through 7 am Wednesday.
Near normal confidence in an extended period of moderate to heavy rainfall at times, primarily Today through Tuesday evening.
A few strong thunderstorms will be possible today – producing gusty winds and frequent lightning, however the main threat will be locally heavy rainfall amounts. While forecast average rainfall through Tuesday night is 1 to 3 inches, locally higher amounts will be possible which could result in street flooding and ponding of water in low lying areas and areas of poor drainage.
