Discussion...
large area of light rain is moving across the region. Should be
clearing out across southeast Texas this evening by 9
PM...southwest and central Louisiana before midnight...and south
central Louisiana by 3 am Monday.

Cooler and drier weather is forecast for most of the week...as a
large surface high pressure moves south across the central US. By
Thursday night...a frontal boundary sets up in our vicinity...and
rain chances increase. Could see some thunderstorms on
Friday...but instability is lacking so coverage of thunderstorms
may not be so great...but rain coverage looks to be good.

Rain ends Saturday as a cold front moves across the region...and a
drier and cooler weather pattern is setting up beyond that again.
