City monitoring weather for the weekend

The City is monitoring weather over the next several days, and anticipates heavy rain over the weekend. At this time, we expect 3-5 inches of rain beginning Friday and into Saturday, combined with elevated tides. 

Here are some key takeaways: 

--Tropical disturbance over the Gulf of Mexico, now a broad low, with an 80 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression or storm over next 2 to 3 days.
--Watches may be issued for portions of the Texas coast as soon as tonight or early Thursday.
--Main threat to SE Texas will be areas of heavy rain, possible flooding, mainly Friday and Saturday. Elevated tides and surf possible along the Gulf Coast. Tide levels 2.5 to 3.5 feet above  likely, but could be a little higher should storm intensify quickly.
--Gusty winds possible, perhaps to tropical storm force, especially near and right the center track, which remains uncertain. Most likely track toward the Mid Texas coast but subject to change.
