A weak low pressure system along the Texas coast has a low (10%) chance of developing into a tropical cyclone as it moves down the Texas coast on Monday. What this means for us locally is another day for rain and embedded thunderstorms on Monday. Rain totals will be highest along and south of the I-10 corridor of southeast Texas and southern Louisiana, where as much as an inch of rain could fall. Locally as much as 2 to 4 inches of rain is possible. If these rains fall in areas that are still dealing with the flood from two weeks ago, water levels could temporarily rise during and right after the heavy rains. Along the coast, tides are running above normal. During high tide after midnight tonight, there could be minor coastal flooding.
Elsewhere in the tropics, tropical depression 8 is a threat to North Carolina this week, Gaston is a hurricane in the Atlantic that won't threaten any land, and we are expecting a tropical wave to move off the coast of Africa and have a medium (50%) chance of developing into a tropical cyclone later this week.
