Tropical Update

Disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico are associated with a mid-level area of low pressure interacting with a surface trough located near the Texas coast. Development of this system is not expected before it moves inland over Texas later today and tonight. However, abundant moisture streaming northwestward from the Gulf of Mexico will increase the chance of heavy rainfall and flash flooding across portions of southeast Texas during the next few days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (10%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (10%)
