8/24 – Rob’s “TS Harvey Update” Forecast
Tropical Storm Harvey re-developed last night over the southern Gulf of Mexico.
This storm will impact the Texas coast this week into this weekend…it will also have an impact across much of the southern United States. For today along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, we can expect showers and storms to develop this afternoon as a cold front overhead will go stationary and linger through the weekend. This will serve as a focus for showers/t-storms through the weekend.
Going into the weekend the big story will be Tropical Storm Harvey. Latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center has Harvey becoming a hurricane before landfall. Harvey then stalls across southeast Texas for the majority of the weekend. We may not see the heaviest rainfall until Tuesday or Wednesday across our forecast area. Locally heavy rainfall will be possible each and every day starting Saturday and possibly lasting through Wednesday. There is a large degree of uncertainty in the forecast for next week, so the forecast could change dramatically over the next few days.
