Much Needed Rain for Parts of Texas on Wednesday...

An upper-level weather disturbance will move across northern Mexico and southern Texas late tonight and into Wednesday, bringing much needed rain to parts of the Lone Star State.

Right now it appears that the most beneficial rains will fall in a nearly West-East band across the middle Texas coast, into the Houston area and southern Louisiana.  Localized amounts in excess of 1.5 inch are possible, as shown in blue and purple on the image below:

Elsewhere, a general rain of 0.50 inch or less is expected for many locations along and East of I-35.

Some of the thunderstorm activity associated with the disturbance may produce hail and/or wind gusts near severe limits in parts of deep south Texas late tonight and into Wednesday, as shown within the brown shaded area on the image below:
