Front to bring rain and touch of autumn next week, but much remains uncertain

An influx of deep Gulf moisture, a low pressure trough to the west and a cold front expected to move into Texas by Sunday will bring us periods of shower and thunderstorm activity through the weekend into next week. Some heavy rain will be possible in our area, especially from Sunday night into late Monday or early Tuesday. In addition, the front should move to the coast by late Monday or early Tuesday, delivering more seasonably appropriate temperatures to Galveston County.

More wet weather, a Gulf disturbance, and questions on when we might see a real cold front
Posted: September 14, 2016

We are going into our sixth consecutive day with rainfall being reported in at least some areas of Galveston County. Rainfall amounts overall during this latest wet spell have ranged from around 1 inch over parts of Galveston Island up to nearly 3 inches over some inland locations. Since we are (believe it or not) running below normal for the month so far, I cannot say that the precipitation has been entirely unwelcome. The good news is that wet weather is likely to continue for the next week or two, with heavy amounts possible near the coast.
