Tropics Battle Oklahoma?

Could it be? Another storm forming in The Gulf of Mexico? Probably. After all, it is now the peak of Hurricane Season and The Gulf is certainly an area that is usually watched for development. And, as we would expect, The National Hurricane Center is not only paying attention to what’s going on in The Atlantic, but also, what’s going on right off the coast of Mexico/Texas.

“X” marks the spot! This area, as of this writing has a 60% chance (HIGH RISK) for turning into a Tropical Depression. The good news, is that with it being near the shore, it would not have much time to grow into a major Hurricane. And perhaps even better news, is that it could be headed this way. (We need the rain!)

So, what’s steering it this way? High pressure to the southeast will move this system whichever way it wants. Similar to what was controlling Earl.  If the high moves east, then we could be just skirted with Eastern Oklahoma and Arkansas being most impact. But, if the high moves west, then this week could be a week where we measure rainfall in the inches. Get Ready!
