Rainmaker headed for western Gulf coast

Tuesday 4th June 2019

Disturbance Two continues to remain offshore in the Bay of Campeche and nudge its expected landfall north towards the Texas border. Currently centred around 300 miles south-east of Brownsville moving north-west at 6 knots, this is a busy little system radiating line squalls and picking up moisture. The glass is still falling albeit slowly, which may allow the disturbance to become a tropical depression at landfall this evening somewhere close to the mouth of the Rio Grande. This isn't much of a wind producer making perhaps a maximum of 45 knots in squalls, but is becoming something of a rainmaker and is expected to deliver up to 6 inches in places along the coast from Tampico to Galveston.

Stand by for rain along the western Gulf coast, otherwise stand easy.
