Long Term
(Saturday through next Tuesday) Issued at 335pm CDT Wednesday July 17 2024

A very wet and rainy longterm period is in store as a series of shortwave trough pulses work around a low pressure center parked over the north Central US. Buoyant and deeply moist airmass in place ahead of these shortwave perturbations will allow widespread convection to develop each day in southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. Forecast PWATs (Precipitable Waters) 2.00 to 2.30 inches and warm-column soundings indicate warm-rain processes will be in place, making for very efficient downpours. With more and more rainfall piling on through the short and then long term periods, the threat of urban and localized river flooding increases. The Weather Prediction Center has placed most of the area in a Marginal Risk (1 out of 4) of Excessive Rainfall on Saturday and the entire area in a Marginal on Sunday. This indicates there could be rainfall rates which could lead to aforementioned flooding concerns. With little break in the pattern seen for Monday and Tuesday, it is likely that more Excessive Rainfall Outlook areas will be drawn up for these days. Keep those rain boots handy!

Widespread rain-cooled air and cloud cover will keep temperatures in check for the weekend and start of the work week. High temps should only top out in the upper 80s to around 90 F each day. Elevated dewpoints, however, will keep the overnight hours feeling very warm and muggy in the low to mid 70s.
