Default Tropical Storm Imelda....Looks like we're in for it again

Storm just upgraded to a named Tropical storm, Houston and the surrounding area is supposed to get as much or more rain than we did during Harvey.

UGH...guess Im heading down to pull the boat and secure all my crap before it floats away.

Be safe ery'body and don't take chances with high water.

Hopefully it will follow most of the models I've seen today... yes lots of rain and could see some at or close-to tropical storm level winds, but with any luck it should stay well off shore and headed N/NE and out into the Atlantic.

Good luck! The flooding is going to be a bitch.

Well, that was fast. Last night the weather guessers were saying it was non-tropical, dis-organized, and only about a 20% chance of development. That was after fishing all weekend in matagorda and watching it start to rotate in the gulf and my wife saying how it sure looked like a tropical storm. Saw some really cool looking cloud formations as is the bands of rain headed toward us. Anyway, hope the coast and Houston area don't get soaked too bad, and hope we get a little rain out of it over here in the hill country. We sure need it.

I think you're looking at the wrong storm, Houston is a long way from the Atlantic

there are two areas of concern. One in the northern Gulf and another crossing the Atlantic. One in Gulf is gonna make landfall this weekend, stall and produce lots of rain for the concrete jungle.

LOL... you're right..! Meant to say Gulf.

STILL hoping for y'all's sakes the rain doesn't keep up for too long, sure as shite someone will try crossing moving water over a road and get kilt.

Be safe and hope it's nothing more than a light soaking.

Imelda is not good for Texas. Not the worst but not good.

TD10 is SLIGHTLY unnerving. We're not at the point of concern with TD10 yet. Btw, don't go to the euro for TD10. The euro doesn't handle low level tropical developments well. Just have to keep watching it. Right now the models favor a hook to the east.

The good news is that dominant high pressure coming off the NE of the USA still looks to be holding strong.

Looks like my Thursday flight out of Houston will be delayed.

Hope everyone one stays safe!

Not sure where you heard that. The most I saw predicted was 21 inches and that was only for a small area. Average was predicted at 5 - 10 inches. We got well over 60 during Harvey.
