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

Posted:

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.
