Synopsis: Storms near the Rio Grande pulled storm energy into the Crossroads on Sunday bringing scattered showers.  The storms will weakened or become absorbed into a cold front moving down from the north.  This boundary will move into the Crossroads Monday evening shifting/changing winds with the chance of bringing some showers with the best chances along the coast where moisture levels are the highest. Drier air will move in putting an end to most rain activity but some showers could linger Monday night into Tuesday morning.  The dry air and lack of cloud cover could lead to warmer temperatures on Monday.

For the long term, Tuesday through Saturday, high pressure will keep skies clear right through the weekend.  This means lots of sun, warm temperatures but without the clouds some nights could drop into the 50’s further inland.

Tropical Update: Hazardous seas, minor flooding and an increase in rip currents will be possible Tuesday through Friday.  Waves and swell periods will begin to increase as early as Wednesday morning as Tropical Storm Ian enters the eastern Gulf of Mexico as Major (Cat 3 Storm or Greater) Hurricane.  Swell periods could be between 10-15 seconds Wednesday evening through Thursday evening before decreasing on Friday.  These swell periods will likely push water to the dunes and cause minor coastal flooding across the Middle Texas Coast.  Wave heights of around 10 feet and occasionally higher will cause hazardous seas Wednesday night through Thursday night.  Beach goers and mariners of South Texas should pay close attention to Tropical Storm Ian and future forecasts.   A shift to the west will increase impacts along the coast and over the waters, where as a shift to the east would lessen impacts.
