DAILY TROPICAL UPDATE: African dust returns to Houston Sunday

Meteorologist Travis Herzog is keeping an eye on the tropics.

Another thick African dust cloud blowing thru the Gulf and Caribbean today will keep tropical activity in check. Meanwhile, the remnants of Beryl are no longer expected to redevelop due to high wind shear.

Meteorologist Travis Herzog says there are no tropical threats to the Gulf over the next five days because the large dust cloud from Africa's Sahara desert will blow in a tremendous amount of dry air. Look for the haze to reach Houston Sunday afternoon.

Water temps in the main development region remain well below normal, and more heavy dust is coming out of Africa. Travis says that when these two conditions are prevalent in the Atlantic, tropical development is normally suppressed.

Slower wind speeds along our coastline will lower the threat for dangerous rip currents today.
