An upper-level low to the northwest and a moist, unstable atmosphere is contributing to shower and thunderstorm activity over southeast Texas this morning. This has resulted in a special marine warning for Galveston Bay and adjacent waters and a flash flood watch for the area.
At 7:30 am, a strong line of thunderstorms was approaching northern Galveston County. The line, configured in a “bow echo” shape, can produce strong gusty winds and heavy downpours and residents should be prepared for these conditions this morning.
With the unstable atmosphere lingering over the region, we can expect some much needed rain to linger through much of this week, with warmer and drier conditions moving in by the weekend.
