A Ray of Hope for Texas
The clump of clouds in the southern Gulf is now Tropical Storm Nate. My earlier posting (see below) discussed that potential path of Nate as being toward Louisiana and that may still be the case. However, some of the models and the National Hurricane Center are taking Nate on a more northerly course. That might -- might -- bring some moisture in south and east Texas.
However, the storm currently is under very weak steering currents, so this is only educated speculation at this point. Little movement is forecast for Nate for the next day or two.
