Cloudy and Damp; Numerous Showers and Storms through Saturday

Abundant tropical moisture remains in place over the western Gulf of Mexico and South Texas, and that pattern will be exacerbated by an approaching tropical disturbance toward the end of the work week. Whether the disturbance, which will be investigated by hurricane hunters on Wednesday, develops into the tropical depression or a storm, rainfall will be substantial as it moves toward the coast Thursday and Friday. Rain chances diminish by the first of next week.
