AccuWeather Global Weather Center – September 11, 2018 – Texas is being put on alert for possible flooding and dangerous surf as a new tropical threat is forecast to emerge in the western Gulf of Mexico later this week.

“Following downpours that have been pestering central and coastal Texas since last week, a new potential threat from the tropics may arrive late this week by way of the Gulf of Mexico,” said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

“As if there were not enough tropical concerns with Florence bearing down on the Carolinas, Olivia taking a cruise through Hawaii and Isaac on a path through the Lesser Antilles and Caribbean, we have a feisty mass of showers and thunderstorms taking aim at the Gulf of Mexico his week,” Sosnowski said.

The feature of interest, an area of showers and thunderstorms located off the Yucatan Peninsula, will push slowly northwestward from the Caribbean and into the Gulf.

AccuWeather meteorologists are monitoring the potential for the feature to become a tropical depression or tropical storm prior to reaching the Texas coast.

All interests from western Louisiana to Texas and northeastern Mexico should stay up to date with the latest developments on the tropics by continuing to check back to AccuWeather.com and downloading the free AccuWeather app.
