Tropical disturbance in Southern Gulf of Mexico has 60% chance of development

Tropical disturbance in Southern Gulf of Mexico has 60% chance of development”

The disturbance, which formed in the Gulf of Mexico on the first day of hurricane season, has a 60% chance of developing over the next five days, said Matt Stratton, Deputy Director of the Harrison County Emergency Management.

The Weather Prediction Center said heavy rain and flash flooding will become a concern across southeast Texas and the Lower Mississippi Valley through Friday, and flash flood watches are already in place in parts of Texas.

How it will affect Houston is still a bit in doubt.

Looking towards the southwest Gulf of Mexico, satellite images show a large, disorganized cluster of storms moving north into the Bay of Campeche and they're starting to grow.

Regardless of storm formation, the added tropical moisture will meet up with an approaching storm system from the west and could beef up our rain chances from Wednesday to Thursday evening.

If it does strengthen into a tropical storm, it will be named Barry.

Jeff Balke is a writer, editor, photographer, tech expert and native Houstonian. So, this is a good time to get prepared for the season. He has written for a wide range of publications and co-authored the official 50th anniversary book for the Houston Rockets.
