Tropical Depression 10 has formed in the Southwest Gulf and is tracking North. The depression will likely make landfall as Tropical Storm Hermine sometime Tuesday morning. This will be our eighth storm of the season. Since the depression is too close to Mexico it will likely not develop into a hurricane. That means Labor Day afternoon and early evening could be wet in especially along the coast. Due to high astronomical tides and winds coastal flooding is a concern. Minor flooding could occur along Bolivar and highway 87 towards Surfside. This flooding is likely also because the sand dunes have not been replenished to the levels they where before Hurricane Ike. By Tuesday as the right front portion of the storm reaches the Western most portions of our viewing area- - -some flash flooding is likely. Depending on the speed and track of the decaying storm the rainfall will likely be in the 1" to 3" range for cities West and Southwest of Houston. In addition dangerous rip currents will likely continue as TD #10 approaches the Mexican coast over the next 48 hrs. Watch for the the warning flags at the beach during this busy Labor Day holiday and stay safe.
