THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND MOVE
INLAND TODAY AS DEEP MOISTURE ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK TROPICAL
WAVE MOVES IN FROM THE GULF. STORM COVERAGE SHOULD INCREASE OVER
CENTRAL LOCATIONS THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING WITH DAYTIME
HEATING. RAINFALL TOTALS SHOULD AVERAGE FROM ONE HALF TO ONE INCH
WITH ISOLATED TOTALS FROM 3 TO 4 INCHES AREAS WHERE STORMS TRAIN.

IN ADDITION...GIVEN THE TROPICAL AIRMASS IN PLACE...WE COULD ALSO
SEE ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS THAT MAY BE FAVORABLE FOR FUNNEL
CLOUDS AND OR WATERSPOUTS. THESE TYPICALLY OCCUR DURING THE
MORNING THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS. THE FUNNELS RARELY EXTEND
ALL THE WAY TO THE SURFACE BUT CAN PRODUCE MINOR DAMAGE IF THEY
DO. MARINERS SHOULD REMAIN CLEAR OF WATERSPOUTS AS THEY CAN
PRODUCE WINDS IN EXCESS OF 40 KNOTS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED FOR
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AS DEEP TROPICAL MOISTURE LINGERS OVER THE
REGION. LOCALIZED HEAVY RAINFALL WILL REMAIN A THREAT.

OTHERWISE NO HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
