Synopsis: Rain chances to continue, as deep tropical moisture and better instability in our area, courtesy of a series of weak tropical waves moving in from the Gulf. The first tropical wave moved in over the weekend, enhancing our rain chances though today. Will keep a 40% chance in for Monday. Chances fall to 20% Tuesday and Wednesday, as the low pressure trof moves out and dissipates. Another tropical wave moves in from the Gulf Thursday and lingers through Friday into Saturday. Will rain chances going back up Thursday and especially Friday, as the main low pressure trof moves over. Chances reduce to about 20% by Sunday, as the trof moves away and dissipates. Small rain chances Sunday into next week, due to daytime heating. ~ Trey
