This Week and the Atlantic Hurricane Season

We are watching a disturbance, Invest 91L, located in the western Gulf of Mexico. The NHC is giving this disturbance a 60% chance of developing within the next 48 hours. The current models show this system continuing to move in a north-northwestern direction with a possible track turning north-northeast along the Texas Coast. Regardless of the development of this system, we could see increased rain chances in the region starting Tuesday night / Wednesday morning running through Friday. Based on the current conditions and forecasts, the greater Houston area could see between 1 to 2 inches of rainfall over the next 7 days; however, actual rainfall totals will be dependent on the track of this system. We will continue to monitor the conditions and provide additional updates as needed.
