From the NWS in Lake Charles:

The National Hurricane Center has given the northern Gulf of Mexico a medium (40%) chance for tropical development Monday through Thursday. A tropical wave currently near the southern Bahamas will move west-northwest and cross Florida Sunday and reach the eastern Gulf of Mexico by Monday. All interests should stay abreast as we monitor this system through the holiday weekend.

Due to the increase in tropical moisture, we are forecasting 2-3 inches of rain across east Texas and central Louisiana to 4-5 inches along the I-10 corridor south to the coast of southeast Texas and southwest and south central Louisiana. Locally up to 10 inches will be possible. Wherever the heaviest rains fall will be the highest risk for flooding as well. Be prepared for flash flood warnings over the next week and take safety precautions of it is for your area.

Finally, Tropical Storm Florence has formed far out in the Atlantic. This system has a chance to become a hurricane over the next 5 days. While it is forecast to remain in the Atlantic over this next week, we will need to monitor it beyond that to see if it becomes a threat to the Gulf of Mexico.
