The Tropics are getting active, and Texas will be affected

Newly upgraded Tropical Storm Erin in the gulf will likely still be at tropical storm strength when it makes landfall in South TX on Thursday morning, with heavy rain and 45-55mph wind. It will spread lots of tropical moisture into North TX on Friday and Saturday. We will have showers and thunderstorms scattered around, but the big impact will be the cloud cover. The clouds will likely break the heat wave, with highs only in the upper 80s/lower 90s on Friday and Saturday.

Tropical Storm Dean in the mid-Atlantic will continue to strengthen to hurricane level over the next two days. The long range computer guidance is pointing toward Dean making it just south of Cuba, north of Cancun, and into the gulf. Potential landfall next Thursday/Friday could occur. Too early to pinpoint with any confidence, but certainly the Texas coast may be in the impact area.
