The leftovers of Tropical Storm Harvey are bubbling in the Gulf, and national weather experts appear almost certain a tropical system will form.
The National Weather Service say details of the tropical storm or potentially hurricane’s landfall location are “still very uncertain,” but note the possibility of landfall along the lower to middle Texas coast around Friday.
Houston, Galveston and Southeast Texas residents may experience widespread, heavy rainfall of around 4 to 8 inches, with the possibility of 10 to 16 inches in some areas, through the weekend according to the National Weather Service.
Its been almost 9 years since a major hurricane made landfall in Texas, and experts believe the Lone Star State is long overdue for one. According to the National Weather Service, any 50-mile stretch of the Texas coast averages one hurricane every six years.
