A few may briefly pulse up to strong levels and produce strong wind gusts, hail and localized heavy rainfall. Tonight, a upper level disturbance will begin moving into the region from Mexico. Look for increasing precipitation coverage after midnight. Some of the rainfall could be heavy at times...especially near a stationary frontal boundary that should be situated somewhere between roughly Conroe and the coast. There is a slight to moderate risk of flash flooding across most of southeast Texas beginning late tonight.     .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday   The upper level disturbance will continue moving through the area. Its associated precipitation and the threat of heavy rain and flash flooding will persist into Monday night. Rain chances continue on Tuesday ahead of, and behind, a passing cold front. Gradually improving weather conditions are expected by late Tuesday night and Wednesday.   .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...   Spotter activation is not anticipated at this time.   $$
