Harvey's back: Hurricane watch posted for parts of Texas coast

Harvey's back: Hurricane watch posted for parts of Texas coast Harvey's back: Hurricane watch posted for parts of Texas coast

Over the next two days, the storm could continue to gain intensity and become a hurricane before it reaches the Texas coast, forecasters said said. Thunderstorms managed to fire up late in the afternoon on both sides of that area of low pressure, adding confirmation that this system was once again becoming organized.

By Friday, it looks likely that Harvey will reside close to the mid-Texas coast.

Watches have been issued along the Texas coast, and the National Hurricane Center said people in southwestern Louisiana should be prepared, as watches will be issued for that area later Wednesday.

Tropical Depression Harvey in the southern Gulf of Mexico is forecast to head toward Texas and then meander into early next week.

As of 1 p.m. Tuesday, the remnants of former Tropical Storm Harvey were located over the Yucatan Peninsula.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami are keeping their eye on a patch of disturbed weather they say still has the potential to form into a tropical cyclone and possible target Florida.

The National Hurricane Center had said the storm could make landfall, affecting the cities of Corpus Christi, Tex., Houston and New Orleans, among others. Rather, this system will be an efficient rainmaker, bringing pesky off and on showers and storms during the morning and afternoon hours for the second half of the week.

It's tracking northward at 10 miles per hour, and on that path Harvey - in whatever form it may be - could reach the Gulf Coast by late Friday. Harvey will help push in more tropical moisture, but for the next few days drier air from the north will keep us mainly dry. We'll have to see how this plays out but it would be beneficial rain if it plays out that way. That means it could dump a lot of rain on parts of Texas and Louisiana and raise flooding concerns. "Regardless of if Harvey becomes a hurricane or not, heavy rainfall will be the main threat to watch out for, not wind".
