An area of disturbed weather will move into the western Gulf of Mexico late-week. This will lead to a surge of moisture (red and purple shadings) near the western Gulf Coast, enhancing showers and thunderstorms.

While the increased chances of rain would be bad news for vacationers along the coast, the incoming downpours are beneficial to this region of the country, where abnormally dry or drought conditions have developed, according to the latest drought moniter.

Flooding from excessive rainfall cannot be ruled out for some areas, but it’s too early to pinpoint those details this far out in time.

In addition, rip currents could be a danger for beachgoers along the western Gulf Coast this week and into the weekend given the potential for several days of onshore winds.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Source: The Weather Channel
