    Tropical Depression - Gulf of Mexico - Tx coast and the W. Louisiana coast Mon, Tues.

    TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
    NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
    800 PM EDT SUN JUN 14 2015

    For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

    1. Data from an Air Force Reserve Unit Hurricane Hunter aircraft
    indicate that a broad area of low pressure has formed in association
    with the surface trough and upper-level low over the south-central
    Gulf of Mexico. However, the low's circulation is not well-defined,
    and the current shower and thunderstorm activity remains somewhat
    disorganized. The aircraft also found a large area of tropical
    storm force winds well to the north and northeast of the low.
    Upper-level winds are forecast to gradually become more favorable
    while this system moves northwestward during the next couple of days
    across the western Gulf of Mexico, and a tropical depression or
    tropical storm could form during that time. Another Hurricane
    Hunter aircraft will investigate this system Monday morning.

    Interests in and along the northwestern Gulf of Mexico should
    monitor the progress of this system. Regardless of tropical cyclone
    formation, tropical storm conditions are possible along portions of
    the middle and upper Texas coast and the western Louisiana coast
    Monday night and Tuesday. There is also a risk of heavy rainfall
    and possible flooding across portions of eastern Texas and western
    Louisiana. For additional information, please see High Seas
    Forecasts and products issued by your local National Weather Service
    forecast office.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent
    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent

    No one needs another drop of rain but apparently Mother Nature knows better than us. I guess long term , for a dry region like Texas, this is a good thing.

    Hi Peliman, thanks for the heads up. I had no idea anything was brewing in the Gulf.

    yuppers, got my eye on this.

    darling husband and I, only 25 minutes inland from the Galveston beach.

    we spent time yesterday getting prepared in case of the worst.
    ready to bring our chickens, 4 red hens in the garage if need be, all gassed up, pulled cash out atm's, groceries..

    luckily, we have a natural gas gen outside that will kick on within 30 seconds of lost power, enough to power 2 story home..

    we learned our lesson w/ hurricane Ike..

    hurricane season seems to be getting a early start this yr...

    time to bat down the hatches so to speak and hunker down..

    flooding scares me more than the winds...
    my other car is a broomstick

    Q: What's the best advice you can give to a witch on a broomstick?

    A: Don't fly off the handle!

    Just checking in here. I am in Houston so gonna get all the rain and possible flooding. We DONT NEED IT. Ground is so saturated that when it rained for about 20 mins yesterday there were standing puddles and little rivers running through the yard. I also live about 5 mins from a huge reservoir that is know to flood over the roads. Going to run to the store to grab a bottle of wine so I should be set.

    A local Fox4 news anchor just said on her fb page ' if this strengthen it will be Hurricane Bill'. I assume she's mistaken since the only term I've heard is it MIGHT become a tropical storm. I think she's a busy lady and just mistook hurricane for tropical storm, right? No one has said hurricane is even within the possibilities that I've heard.
