Invest 95L

The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor a disturbance in the Western Gulf. Invest 95L is currently offshore and east of the South Texas Coast, and remains disorganized. However, there is a 40% chance this storm could become a short-lived tropical depression later today. Rainfall chances will be on the rise today, with the possibility for heavy rain becoming greatest overnight tonight.

 

 

Overall, rainfall totals will be greatest along the coast where around 4-6″ can be expected. Locally higher amounts up to 10″ are possible, but this possibility will be highly conditional on the exact track of the system. While this will provide a benefit of alleviating drought conditions near the coast, there will also be a risk of urban and small stream flooding with the strongest storms that develop. Rainfall totals will decrease further north from the coast with a sharp drop off from several inches of rain to little rain.
