Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Tue Jun 19 2018
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
1. Surface observations and NOAA Doppler weather radar data indicate
that a surface trough associated with a low- and mid-level low
pressure system has moved inland over the Texas coastal plain.
Although this system is producing a widespread area of cloudiness
and disorganized showers and thunderstorms, interaction with land
and proximity to dry air in the mid-levels of the atmosphere should
prevent a tropical cyclone forming. However, this disturbance is
likely to produce additional heavy rainfall and flash flooding
across portions of southern and southeastern Texas during the next
few days. For more details on this disturbance and the threat for
heavy rainfall, please see products issued by your local weather
office and High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent.
