Potential tropical development in the Gulf is nothing for Texas to worry about.
The upcoming winter could be wetter and cooler than normal in Houston and most of Texas. That's according to an outlook issued Thursday by NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Tropical moisture will produce torrential downpours across the Houston area beginning tonight and continuing off and on through Friday
