Wx Summary

A slow-moving coupled, coupled with increasing Gulf moisture, will lead to scattered showers and thunderstorms across the plateau each day for the next several day. Activity should peak in the heat of the afternoons and gradually taper off into the evenings. Widespread severe weather is not expected, but any storm that develops could be strong.

Hurricane Forecast

The tropics remain active, with one area of low pressure continue to move up the Texas coastline. That disturbance will bring heavy rainfall to the coastal areas there today.

Another area of low pressure is being slow about developing but will move into Central America this weekend (red X).

Yet another area of low pressure (yellow-shaded region) will move into the Caribbean today. That system will encounter some hostile problems but still remains worth monitoring.
