This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Southeast Texas..

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The National Hurricane Center is continuing to monitor the remnants
of tropical system Harvey, which is currently located over the
eastern Bay of Campeche, and is expected to move northwestward
over the western Gulf of Mexico. Environmental conditions are
favorable for development, and a tropical depression or tropical
storm is very likely to form today or tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

The tropical system will move into the northwestern Gulf of
Mexico on Friday, and possibly slow down over the region. A slow
moving tropical system such as this can produce copious tropical
rainfall amounts. In the past, slow moving tropical systems have
produced amounts in excess of 20 inches leading to widespread
dangerous flooding. Tropical storm to hurricane force winds could
be possible, as well as tornadoes and storm surge. High tides
along the upper Texas Coast will likely cause impacts from
dangerous rip currents to storm surge flooding. The range of
possibilities with storm surge are varied given the highly
uncertain track of this system. Evacuations may be possible.

Marine impacts will include high winds and large dangerous seas
possible by Friday again depending on the strength and track of
the system.

Persons in Southeast Texas should be monitoring the weather
closely.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is likely at some point between Thursday night
and Monday.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for South-Central Texas..

.DAY ONE...Today And Tonight.

Afternoon scattered thunderstorms across much of the area could
produce gusty winds as they dissipate.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

We are monitoring the remnants of what was Tropical Storm Harvey,
currently located near the Yucatan. Conditions are favorable for
re-development into a tropical cyclone today or tonight over the
southwest Gulf of Mexico. The system should impact the Texas
coast Friday into the weekend. However there remains considerable
uncertainty on exactly where the system will move into the Texas
coast and impacts inland across South Central Texas.

At this time between 2 and 6 inches of rainfall, with isolated
higher amounts, are forecast across areas mainly along and east
of the I-35 corridor Friday through the weekend. It should be
stressed that there is the potential for much higher amounts
across South Central Texas if the center of the potential tropical
system tracks into the Lower or Mid Texas Coast, and much lower
amounts if the center tracks into the Upper Texas Coast. These
rainfall forecast amounts are likely to change.

There is also the potential for tropical storm force winds inland
Friday into Saturday east of I-35. However, it is too soon to
determine exact wind impacts.

Stay closely tuned to forecast over the next day or two as greater
confidence and details emerge.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.
