Gulf Coast Faces Dangerous Flood Threat From Tropical Storm Harvey

The remnants of what was once Tropical Storm Harvey will become a tropical storm or hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico and will bring dangerous flooding rain to areas near the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast into the weekend or early next week. Right now, clusters of showers and thunderstorms in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico are becoming more organized, and at least a tropical depression appears to be forming. An analysis from the University of Wisconsin shows there is some modest westerly wind shear over the remnants thanks to a separate upper-level low pressure system off the Louisiana coast, but that doesn’t seem to be a big inhibiting factor.
