"Harvey weakened to an open tropical wave on Saturday the system was encountering some unfavorable environmental conditions and eventually weakened and is now still a strong tropical wave, the current location of the system is about 15 degrees north 82 west and the remnants of it is moving to the west northwest at about 15-20 miles per hour".

The National Hurricane Center's 8 a.m. This will likely continue into the first few days of next week as well, and at this time we are going to go ahead and start increasing the chance for widespread rain and storms Sunday through Tuesday.

A tropical storm is expected to become Hurricane Harvey when it makes landfall in the Coastal Bend sometime on the night of Friday, Aug. 25.

A weak cold front will move slowly across the Red River before sunrise Wednesday, then move south of I-20 into Central Texas by Wednesday afternoon and evening.




The ABC13 Weather Team is tracking Tropical Depression Harvey in the western Caribbean and southern Gulf of Mexico.

"At this point we're forecasting a category one hurricane, but emergency managers always plan for a category higher", said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the National Hurricane Center. Rather, this system will be an efficient rainmaker, bringing pesky off and on showers and storms during the morning and afternoon hours for the second half of the week. This would create strong winds and potentially a damaging storm surge for parts of the Texas/Louisiana coast (depending on the strength and position of Harvey). "Southern Louisiana may pick up 10-15" of rainfall wile the rest of Louisiana and central/southern MS may see 3-7". While the heaviest rain would likely be closer to the track of the system, anything headed into Texas puts south Louisiana on the wetter side of the system.

For now, areas along the Texas Gulf Coast are currently under the biggest threat, this could include Corpus Christi. We'll have to see how this plays out but it would be beneficial rain if it plays out that way. On the forecast track, Harvey should be approaching the Texas coast late Friday, according to the NHC.
