The focus for Texas continues to be the remnants of Harvey which will emerge from the Yucatan Peninsula around sunset. Once over water, conditions will be quite favorable for the remnants of Harvey to become a tropical system once again. The weakness in the ridge will allow this feature to lift northwest this week. The majority of weather models suggest a landfall somewhere along the Texas Coast. There are some outliers as far south as Northeast Mexico and as far east as Louisiana, which serve as a reminder that nothing is set in stone. We will continue to monitor the progress of it over the next few days. People along the Northwest Gulf Coast need to keep a close eye on their local forecasts this week. This includes cities such as Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Houston, Galveston, Port Arthur, and many others. An excerpt from the 1:00 PM discussion from the National Hurricane Center is posted below. As always, you can get the latest from Texas Storm Watch on the blog, Facebook, and Google Play!
