TD #12 & Rain on the Way for Texas!!!

Good Afternoon,

We are monitoring TD #12 in the far eastern Atlantic just southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. TD #12 is forecast to become Tropical Storm Katia in the next 24 to 36 hours. After a trek across the Atlantic in a west-northwesterly fashion TD # 12 could possible again threaten the SE U.S. Models vary on eventual track with some re-curving east of Bermuda. We also have some homegrown tropical trouble to discuss. An area of disturbed weather coupled with a trough split could develop in the western Gulf of Mexico toward the end of this week bringing at least much needed rainfall for Texas. The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for SE Texas and SW Louisiana stating that a widespread area of 2 to 3 inches of rainfall is expected with some areas receiving up to 7 inches of rainfall starting Thursday through Sunday of this week. Thanks for stopping by!!!
