The National Hurricane Center on Friday upgraded the disturbance in the Bay of Campeche to Potential Tropical Cyclone 4, with an 80 percent chance of developing into a named system over the next five days.


National Hurricane Center projections call for 45 mph sustained winds when the system makes landfall over northeast Mexico or extreme South Texas. Consequently, Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect southward from Port Mansfield, Texas, to Boca de Catan, Mexico.

Will no one mention that in the areas where it's headed each inch of rain could be worth a billion dollars or more? The 8 inches Galveston county got this month should be worth billions.
