Satellite imagery shows the upper low over the Middle Texas coast near Rockport moving to the east-northeast. The coastal trough/low pressure area appears to have moved east of the offshore waters.

Scattered showers along with areas of light drizzle will continue through most of the afternoon while drier conditions are expected for the Brush Country. North winds will continue to gradually increase as the gradient increases between the low pressure area over the northwest Gulf of Mexico and high pressure building into south Texas. Lowered high temperatures down a little bit, closer to the Consshort output.
