This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Southeast Texas..

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A storm system will move across the area late Saturday afternoon
and depart early Sunday morning. On average, expect between 0.75 
and 1.5 inches of rain. Localized higher amounts to 3 inches are
possible where training heavier cells occur. We will be monitoring
the potential for isolated severe storms, more specifically the 
threat of tornadoes, Saturday night. This threat will be 
dependent on the eventual track of a low pressure area expected to
develop in the Gulf. At this time, it appears the highest threat 
will be confined mostly offshore and near the coast.

With warmer air spreading over the cooler nearshore waters, areas
of sea fog may become an intermittent problem, outside of
precipitation, Saturday night into early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed Saturday night.
