The 10 a.m. CDT update from the National Hurricane Service has extended Tropical Storm Warnings west to High Island and a Tropical Storm Watch has been extended across Galveston Island to San Luis Pass. This reflects uncertainty on how far to the west the system will track before making its turn back to the north and northeast.
At any rate, another advisory will be issued at 12 p.m. CDT. For the time being, we can expect gusty to strong winds from late tonight through early Thursday, passing squalls and elevated tides. As before, much depends on whether the center passes to our east or moves further west into the upper-Texas coast near Galveston. It also depends on whether the system becomes organized enough to develop into a true tropical storm.
Stay tuned and adhere to any warnings issued by the local NWS or National Hurricane Center
