NWS Houston – Galveston Update: Monitoring Gulf of Mexico for Possible Development, No Current Threat to Texas

No Comments Local News

Good afternoon,
Bottom Line

The tropics remain active this afternoon and are expected to remain active over the next week. While we are currently monitoring Hurricane Irma, an area of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche, and a wave in the central Atlantic, none of these systems pose a threat to Southeast Texas at this time.

Generally dry conditions are expected through the remainder of today, with isolated to scattered showers possible Tuesday into early Wednesday along and ahead of a cold front moving off the area. This cold front is expected to sweep off the Upper Texas coast Wednesday morning and push the area of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche into Mexico, with no impacts expected in Southeast Texas at this time.

Hurricane Irma continues to approach the Leeward Islands this afternoon and is expected to move west to west-northwest towards Florida over the next few days. No impacts are expected in Southeast Texas from Hurricane Irma at this time.
