Forecasters keeping an eye on tropical threat


There’s an area of low pressure that meteorologists are watching that could develop into either a tropical depression or storm.

At the moment, the system does not have a high chance of developing, and even if it does, the models generally do not have this as being any kind of threat to Texas.

But it still is something to watch, especially since the Atlantic Hurricane season goes through the end of November. Storms this late in the season for Texas are not unheard of, but Eric Berger at Space City Weather says they are rare.

“This would not be unprecedented. Hurricane Jerry hit Texas, close to Houston, in 1989. That was the latest storm to strike Texas, at least in the last 150 years,” Berger explained.

If the system develops into a named storm, it will get the name ‘Michael.’
