Tropical Weather Outlook – 

The National Hurricane Center is currently monitoring an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms across the north-central Gulf of Mexico associated with a tropical wave.  The close proximity of this wave to land is expected to prevent any significant development of this system as it moves westward this week, and there is currently a low (10%) chance of tropical cyclone development over the next 5 days.

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will be possible across South Texas and the Middle Texas Coast Wednesday through Friday as this wave moves westward.  Moderate to locally heavy rainfall will be possible with some of these storms.  Widespread flooding is not expected at this time.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Tue Jul 3 2018

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. An area of low pressure continues to produce disorganized showers
and thunderstorms along portions of the northern Gulf Coast.
Although this disturbance is moving inland over southeastern
Louisiana and development is not expected, locally heavy rainfall
is possible over southern Louisiana and southeastern Texas during
the next couple of days.  Additional information on this system can
be found in products issued by your local National Weather Service
office.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent.

2. A non-tropical low pressure system associated with an upper-level
trough is expected to form southwest of Bermuda in a couple of
days. The system could gradually acquire tropical characteristics
later this week while it moves northwestward to northward.  The
disturbance is expected to interact with a front on Sunday and
development is unlikely after that time.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for South Central Texas
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
634 AM CDT Fri Jun 29 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Continued hot and dry weather for most of the area through middle
of next week. The high temperatures will allow the relative
humidity to drop below 30% across various parts of the northern
and western sections of the forecast area each afternoon through
the forecast period. Medium-range models are developing a rain
producing system in the Gulf and moving it into Texas. Weather
prediction models (GFS and ECMWF) still do not agree well on what
this system will do once it gets to Texas. One has a significant
rain event and the other only modest rain scenario. They are
slowly coming into better agreement every new run, but are still
far apart. We have sided with the lower (GFS) rain chances for
now.
