Storms have ended for the most part with moderate areas of rain
falling acrs SE texas and SRN louisiana this evening. Cloud
heights to vary but should remain abv MVFR ifr flight conditions
thru sunrise. For for some additional storms a bit later.

Prev discussion issued 754 pm cdt Tue jun 25 2019
update...

light rain still ongoing as the rain continues to
slowly dissipate. After midnight... Will keep slight
pops for any further development. Best chance of rain
is in southeast texas along the coast after midnight and even
then we are not expecting more than 30 percent. This forecast
is based on a worked over atmosphere and hrrr 1 hour forecasts
that look out through the night. Hrrr is not showing much.

Have updated pops for ongoing light rain... And modify temps some
but kept overnight lows in place as we could see some slight
warming as southerly light winds return.

Prev discussion... Issued 349 pm cdt Tue jun 25 2019
synopsis...

showers and thunderstorms will continue in the forecast through
Wednesday for southeast texas and extreme western louisiana as
abundant moisture and upper level disturbances will initiate
activity. Frequent lightning, brief heavy rainfall, and brief
gusty winds can be expected with the storms. A mid level ridge
will begin to work into acadiana on Wednesday then through the
remainder of the forecast area on Thursday, briefly reducing rain
chances. A general weakness aloft and abundant gulf moisture will
bring elevated rain chances over the weekend.

discussion...

tail end of an upper level trough has left a general weakness over
western louisiana and along the texas coast while a mid level
ridge remains over the north central gulf. Plenty of gulf moisture
getting squeezed between these two features and over the forecast
area. Meanwhile, disturbances moving in the southwest flow out of
old mexico and deep south texas, helping to interact with the
moisture and produce areas of showers and storms. Some of the
storms especially moving into lower southeast texas and lower
southwest louisiana could be on the strong side, with frequent
cloud to ground lightning, brief heavy rainfall, and brief gusty
winds. This initial activity will decrease during the evening
hours.

On Wednesday, the mid level ridge will try to push eastward into
the forecast area. This will likely reduce rain chances for
acadiana. However, looks like another disturbance moving up the
texas coast will get another complex of storms going overnight
that will move into southeast texas and southwest louisiana on
Wednesday morning.

By Thursday, the mid level ridge should move into the forecast
area. Drier air, especially seen between the 85h-70h layer should
help put a lid on most convection from developing.

This ridge will move westward into texas on Friday and begin to
lost its identity leaving a general weakness aloft.

Over the weekend into early next week could be on the general wet
side. Upper level weakness looks to deepen into a cut off upper
level low or trough. Meanwhile, a series of inverted troughs in
the low levels will allow plenty of gulf moisture to surge into
the forecast area. Therefore, looks like elevated rain chances
from Saturday through the end of the forecast period. The best
chance and coverage of the shower activity will be in the
afternoon hours. However, with the very moist air mass in place,
convection could develop at any time. Also, some locally heavy
down pours could occur with any of the stronger convection that
develops.

marine...

an upper level disturbance working up the texas coast will bring
showers and thunderstorms over the coastal waters of southeast
texas and southwest louisiana for the remainder of the afternoon.

This activity will diminish this evening, with another round
possible overnight into Wednesday morning. Locally higher winds
and seas, along with frequent cloud to water lightning can be
expected with the storms.

Otherwise, a low level high pressure system will move into the
northwest gulf of mexico for the remainder of the week. This will
bring about mainly light winds and decreasing seas, away from any
convection.

An upper level disturbance will combine with increasing moisture
to provide elevated chances for showers and thunderstorms over the
weekend.
