Tropical Depression May Form in Gulf

Storm will bring rain to northeast Mexico and southern Texas.

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 8:00:00 AM -05:00

Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a broad area of low pressure located over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico has decreased since yesterday and remains disorganized. This system could briefly become a tropical depression before moving inland over northeastern Mexico later today or tonight. Regardless of development, the disturbance will likely produce heavy rainfall over portions of eastern Mexico, southeastern Texas and the Lower Mississippi Valley during the next few days. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance later today, if necessary. Interests along the Gulf coast of Mexico should monitor the progress of this system.  For more information about the rainfall threat in the United States, please see products issued by your local forecast office and the Weather Prediction Center.
