Tropical System Still Likely In The Gulf By Wednesday

The remnant thunderstorms, gusty winds, and tropical downpours associated with what was once classified as Tropical Storm Harvey are currently impacting Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

The center of the storm system is expected to move off of the Yucatan and into the Bay of Campeche on Wednesday. Shortly thereafter forecasters believe the system still has a 90% probability of strengthening into at least a tropical depression if not returning to the ranks of a tropical storm.

The forecast track for the system keeps creeping further and further to the north. What was once forecast as a landfall in northern Mexico now looks as if it could be a landfall in far south Texas.  In fact, the latest model runs indicated a landfall between Houston and Corpus Christi Texas wouldn’t be out of the question.

While it doesn’t look as if this system would be much of a wind maker it could be a tremendous rainmaker. Since Louisiana would be on the so-called “bad side” of the circulation that could mean an abundance of moisture being pushed into the area by the end of the week.

Our advice is to keep checking back with us for the latest news and forecast projections on this particular system.
