A couple of batches of rain moved through Monday on the fringes of some low pressure over the southeast Texas coast.

Most of our rain will taper off this evening by 5 or 6 p.m. Then we'll keep a low chance for a few stray showers overnight.

Tuesday will bring a chance for a few spotty thunderstorms, a few of which could be heavy. Rain chances will stay at 30-40% for Wednesday and Thursday. High temperatures will make it to about 90 (which is average for this point in June).

That low pressure area to our west will stall and drench south Texas this week, but we are on the outskirts with a big high pressure center just to our east - so rain amounts for our area this week look like about 1-3 inches (or perhaps more under heavy downpours).

By the end of the week, that big high pressure area will build right over us. That will make it hotter with less rain for Friday and the weekend.
