A disorganized tropical disturbance in the western Caribbean is expected to move northwestward into the southwest Gulf of Mexico over the next couple of days. There is an almost even chance of this system then developing into a tropical depression or named tropical storm.

If it develops it will either go inland into Mexico south of the Texas border or, as some of the normally reliable models are indicating, parallel the Texas coast before making its way through Texas.

It is too soon to say which of these scenarios may happen (assuming it does develop). It is also too soon to state how strong the system might be or list specific impacts.

If this storm does run along the TX coast it will mostly likely do so early next week.

Right now I would not change any plans. If I was camping along the TX coast or planning a trip there this weekend or next week I would stay ‘weather aware’ and pay attention to any advisories or information from the National Hurricane Center, either through their website, through local TV stations or reputable weather sites online.
