Although the Atlantic Hurricane Season does not start officially for another ten days, there are currently two separate areas for the National Hurricane Center

The area of most concern to the coastal U.S. is a disturbance in the northwest Gulf of Mexico. The Hurricane Center now believes there is about nearly 50/50 chance it could develop into a tropical system sometime later today or tonight before making landfall along the TX Gulf Coast.

The primary threat from this system will be more flooding rains along the northern TX and LA coasts. If there is any place in the U.S. that does not need anymore rain right now, it’s the central and western Gulf Coast.

Any RV’ers camping or traveling along the northern or central TX Gulf Coast should stay ‘weather aware’ and seek out any updates from the National Weather Service or your local TV meteorologist. Please follow any advice or directions from your local Emergency Management Officials.

The second area of concern is several hundred miles east-northeast of Bermuda. Although this disturbance will almost certainly develop into a sub-tropical storm, it is not forecast to impact the U.S. mainland.
