Tropical System to Impact Southeast Texas

The disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico still has not formed into a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm as of  9 am.  A hurricane hunter plane is flying through the storm this morning trying to find the center of the storm along with any signs of development.  
Its hard to predict the path of any storm if you don't know where the center is so there is no "offical" track.  If the disturbance continues on its present movement it will be moving into the central Texas Coast line sometime tomorrow.  
The main threat for Southeast Texas will be heavy rain.  We could see up to 5 or 6 inches of rain that could bring flash flooding problems.  The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch that starts tonight and goes through Wednesday for Southeast Texas.  There shouldn't be a storm surge problem with this system but we could see some minor coastal flooding with the gusty southeast winds pushing tides a little higher than normal.
