NEXT 24-48 HOURS:
More of the same. Most spots will remain overly hot and dry, with little chance of seeing any rain. If some sea-breeze showers pop-up this week, the best chances will be to the southeast of I35. .

**TROPICS UPDATE** ACTIVITY EXPECTED IN THE GULF:
As of the NOAA National Hurricane Center's SAT 2PM update: there is now a MODERATE chance of development for the first disturbance, which is likely to head into the gulf by next week. This disturbance will likely strengthen in the warmer waters of the Gulf, but much is still yet to be determined, as the winds still may not cooperate with tropical development in the area. AS OF the latest long-range models, it is possible* that some type of tropical system could make landfall somewhere on the western sides of the Gulf, perhaps eastern Mexico. But, again, we are very far out and these trends will change. Now, with the tropics heating up, we must remain ready and vigilant even if all we see is precipitation from any storm(s)-because we all know how quickly flooding occurs in central Texas.
