Scattered tropical downpours more likely today

Forecast

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A tropical-like low pressure system is drifting closer to our area from northeastern Mexico sending muggy humidity, overcast skies, and passing heavy downpours through central Texas.

Passing tropical downpours appear more likely on a cloudy, humid day today. Scattered rain will be less likely Tuesday and Wednesday, then hot and dry weather return late this week into next weekend as a brief ridge of high pressure builds over Texas.

Southern counties have the best chance to see more than an inch of rainfall; lesser amounts in our northern counties.

Additional forecast rain totals through Wednesday night

First Warning

The National Hurricane Center is diagnosing an area of disturbed weather over Guatemala with a higher 80% chance of development three to five days from now. This used to be Tropical Storm Amanda in the eastern Pacific, and may be redeveloping as a newly-named system as it reemerges over the Gulf of Mexico this week.

It is too soon to know how this system may impact Texas if at all, but extended-range computer models are consistently signaling that some sort of impact is possible on the Texas coast 7-10 days from now. This could be anything from a weak tropical wave to a more robust system.
