Gulf moisture is streaming back into Texas today, but there is no threat for tropical development.

Karl and Lisa continue to spin over the Atlantic, but neither will threaten land.

Fall's first front will move into the Gulf early next week, so we'll have to monitor it next week for any signs of low pressure development.

A new disturbance moving out of Africa is the next candidate for tropical development as it swiftly moves westward thru the Atlantic. Many computer models try to spin it up into a storm over the Caribbean and eventually the Gulf, but it is far too soon to know with certainty if this scenario will pan out.

We are now coming off the peak of hurricane season, which historically occurs around September 10th. In modern times, southeast Texas has not been impacted by a tropical storm or hurricane after October 15th. Hurricane season ends November 30.
