.DISCUSSION...
Overnight precipitation was associated with a prefrontal line of 
showers and thunderstorms ahead of the next front. Showers still
linger behind the line of storms but will end around sunrise in
southeast Texas and by the late morning hours for south central
Louisiana. Current temps are in the upper 60s acrs srn Louisiana
and near 70 for se Tx. 

The front is expected to move into Hardin and Taylor counties in
the next hour or so with temps falling into the upper 50s. 
Currently Beaumont is 69 degrees. Therefore we are looking at 
about a ten degree drop with temperatures trending down through 
the day but will recover during the middle afternoon as skies 
will be clearing. The clear line is currently located along a 
line from Tyler to Austin moving southeast. For southern 
Louisiana this will take several hours longer but with the same 
out come. Winds will be strong and gusty in the coastal waters 
today with seas buildings a result. They are expected to settle 
this evening only to pick back up late tonight.

Wednesday will start out colder than we have had for the last
several days. Near 40 along the I-10 corridor which will be about
a 25 degree change. But the fog will be gone and the skies will be
clear as high pressure at surface settles in. Thursday will see 
winds swing around towards the southeast late ahead as still 
another system that is expected to move through on Friday. All the
activity will be out of the area during the evening hours. Not 
looking for any precip with the next system. 

As for the weekend... it looks nice and a bit cooler.
