The Houston-Galveston National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Advisory for the local area as a tropical low continues to move toward the Texas Coast. Tides running are running 1-2 feet above expected levels, with additional build-up possible as brisk southeast winds of 20-30 mph continue through tomorrow.

This raises the possibility of minor coastal flooding and some beach erosion as the system in the Gulf of Mexico continues to head in the general direction of the mid- to upper Texas coast.

In addition, a Small Craft Advisory is in effect through tomorrow afternoon as waves of 7-9 feet will be possible off the Upper-Texas coast.

Chances that disturbance AL 91 will become a tropical depression or tropical storm before landfall remain at 60 percent.

Although rainfall amounts tomorrow are generally expected to be less than 2 inches in our area, there is a risk that higher amounts could be seen if storms end up “training” over certain locations.

The National Hurricane Center and the Houston-Galveston National Weather Service will issue further alerts if conditions warrant.
