Tropical Wave Update – 10/15/2019 at 2:30 PM

The National Hurricane Center has increased the chance of the Tropical Disturbance over Central America to a 40% chance of development over the next 5 days. The good news is that the forecasts are continuing to show this system avoiding the Texas coastline and move through the western Gulf of Mexico in a clockwise rotation to the northeast. The system could bring additional moisture into our region, but this track keeps the heaviest rainfall to our east. Overall, the lower Brazos River Watershed, including Fort Bend County, could receive 1 to 2 inches over the next 7 days. We will continue to watch for changes in the forecast and provide updates as necessary.
