Our gulf disturbance is moving onshore the middle Texas Coast. Several rounds of heavy rain and gusty winds can be expected this week. Through Wednesday, a good portion of the coastal region will see 3-8" of rainfall. Locally higher amounts in excess of 10" are likely. Flooding is expected for parts of Texas where these heavier amounts fall. As the National Weather Service says, "Turn Around, Don't Drown." Do not try to cross flooded roadways. Seek another route.
Rainfall amounts over the next several days have increased for Northeast Texas. The system that will pass to our north the middle of this week will help pull this tropical moisture northward. We could see a few Strong Storms across northern sections of the state during the Wednesday through Thursday time-frame. Details are still being refined, but the Storm Prediction Center has a Marginal Risk for Northwest Texas on Wednesday. Main hazards appear to be Hail and Wind.
