The NHC says the disturbance is forecasted to move over the Gulf of Mexico in two or three days. Most of the forecast models suggest a westerly motion through Thursday and then there is a split between the models after that. High pressure will return as our dominate weather maker to allow for highs to reach the upper 90s again with heat index values near and above 105. The sooner that trough interacts with the storm, the sooner it will turn the storm north and ultimately northeast. It could continue to drift westward into Texas or turn northward into Louisiana. Barry is the next name on the list if this low is classified by the National Hurricane Center. When a system is forming the establishment of that center is critical because it can sometimes form well way from the disturbed weather wrapping around it. If the system somehow moves east toward Tampa or the west coast of Florida, South Florida could be impacted by increased rain.
What are the possible impacts on Houston? Additionally, the weather service said widespread heavy rain is anticipated beginning mid-week.
Stay tuned to WGNO on air and on Facebook for the latest tropical developments.

Again, this is just looking at one run of the European model and not an official but should be used to give you an idea of what we could experience each day if the system follows this projected path. We are starting off the morning mostly dry with a partly to mostly cloudy sky.
