Tropical Cyclone Statement

Tropical Cyclone Statement issued June 18 at 4:20PM CDT by NWS Houston/Galveston TX

HLSHGX This product covers Southeast Texas **TROPICAL STORM WARNING EXTENDED NORTHWARD ALONG THE TEXAS COAST** NEW INFORMATION --------------- * CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for Brazoria Islands, Coastal Brazoria, Coastal Jackson, Coastal Matagorda, and Matagorda Islands * CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Brazoria Islands, Coastal Brazoria, Coastal Jackson, Coastal Matagorda, and Matagorda Islands * STORM INFORMATION: - About 490 miles south-southeast of Port O'Connor TX - 22.1N 92.7W - Storm Intensity 40 mph - Movement North or 360 degrees at 6 mph SITUATION OVERVIEW ------------------ Latest guidance continues to show the center of the PCT 1 maintaining its slow westward motion towards the Eastern Mexico coast, with recent analysis indicating the potential tropical storm force wind field extending over 300 nm from the center. As such, a Tropical Storm Warning has been for portions of the SE TX coast between Port O'Connor and San Luis Pass in addition to the warning that was already in effect over the coastal waters. The primary threats associated with this system, and their associated timing, are as follows: * HEAVY RAIN: While models continue to show a trend of the highest rainfall amounts concentrating to our southwest, we continue to anticipate an expansion of shower/thunderstorm coverage between tonight and tomorrow afternoon, with the heaviest of rain still expected to fall closer to the immediate coast. With growing confidence in the shift of highest rainfall amounts to the south, we have cancelled the Flood Watch for locations north of the I-10 corridor. The greatest concern is for the areas in and around Matagorda Bay, where 4-6" of rain could fall (with locally higher amounts). For other locations along and south of the I-10 corridor, can now expect 2-4" of rain. Rainfall will taper off tomorrow night. * WIND GUSTS: Sustained winds to tropical storm force will be possible tomorrow along the immediate coast between Port O'Connor and San Luis Pass, as well as for all offshore zones except Galveston Bay. For other coastal locations, winds could approach 30 knots with occasional gusts as high as 35 knots. Further inland, sustained winds may reach up to 20 knots with some higher gusts at times. * COASTAL FLOODING: Sustained strong onshore winds will produce coastal flooding, with the greatest inundation (2-4 ft) in and around Galveston Bay. Flood prone roadways like Hwy 87 along the Bolivar Peninsula may be impacted in addition to other low lying areas. The impacts will be greatest during tomorrow morning's high tide. Elsewhere, 1-3 ft of inundation are possible which may also impact low-lying and flood prone areas. In general, the greatest impacts from this system will be felt overnight through tomorrow afternoon...with conditions beginning to improve roughly after sunset on Wednesday as the system pushes further inland. While PTC One may be designated as a Tropical Storm before it makes landfall and thus acquire a name, it's important to note that this will not change the expected impacts to our area. This is a time to be weather aware and prepared- have multiple ways to receive warnings and exercise caution if traveling. Remember the phrase, "Turn Around, Don't Drown". Never attempt to drive through a flooded roadway! POTENTIAL IMPACTS ----------------- * FLOODING RAIN: Protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible extensive impacts across areas south of the I-10 corridor. Potential impacts include: - Major rainfall flooding may prompt many evacuations and rescues. - Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become dangerous rivers. Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed. - Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed away. Many places where flood waters may cover escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of moving water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become dangerous. Many road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed out. Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible limited to significant impacts across the southeast Texas coast. * WIND: Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across the southeast Texas coast. Potential impacts in this area include: - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about. - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over. - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways. - Scattered power and communications outages. Elsewhere across Southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated. * SURGE: Protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant impacts across the southeast Texas coast. Potential impacts in this area include: - Areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast. - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low spots. - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and numerous rip currents. - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers. Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in unprotected anchorages. * TORNADOES: Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts across Southeast Texas. Potential impacts include: - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans during tropical events. - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power and communications disruptions. - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS ---------------------------------- * OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION: If you are a visitor, be sure to know the name of the city or town in which you are staying and the name of the county or parish in which it resides. Listen for these locations in local news updates. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities. Closely monitor weather.gov, NOAA Weather radio or local news outlets for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather warnings. * ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION: - For information on appropriate preparations see ready.gov - For information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.org - For additional disaster preparedness information see redcross.org NEXT UPDATE ----------- The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston TX around 10 PM CDT, or sooner if conditions warrant.

This system is expected to turn to the west-northwest and become a tropical storm tonight with a most likely eventual landfall along the Mexican coast Wednesday night. Tropical Storm Warnings remain in effect along all coastal counties across South Texas, the bays and Gulf waters out to 60 nm from Baffin Bay through Port O'Connor. Regardless of development and eventual landfall location, there are several hazards and impacts expected across South Texas from tonight through Thursday due to the large extent and slow movement of this system. The main threats continue to be: - Flash Flooding: Moderate to high threat of flash flooding tonight through Thursday. Rainfall accumulations of 8-10" are expected along the Coastal Bend and southern Brush Country with localized rainfall amounts up to 15". Across the rest of the region, the Rio Grande Plains, northern Brush Country and Victoria Crossroads could have amounts as high as 5-7" through Thursday. - Coastal Flooding: Significant coastal flooding is expected with around 3 ft of inundation possible across the Middle Texas Coast including the bays between Baffin Bay and Matagorda Bay. In addition, there is a High risk of rip currents. - River Flooding: Considerable river flooding along portions of the eastern Coastal Plains and Victoria Crossroads from tonight through Thursday. There is a 31% chance of Major flooding at the Aransas River at Skidmore and a 21% at Oso Creek. The River Forecast Center has begun using forecasted rainfall amounts to determine the potential for moderate to major river flooding. - Winds: Sustained winds of 35 mph with gusts to 45 mph can be expected across the Coastal Bend, while winds of up to 55 knots can be expected over the bays and Gulf waters out to 60 nm from Baffin Bay through Port O'Connor. - Hazardous Seas: Wave heights 15 to 18 feet with occasionally to around 20 feet. POTENTIAL IMPACTS ----------------- * FLOODING RAIN: Protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible extensive impacts across South Texas.

Tropical Cyclone Statement

Tropical Cyclone Statement issued June 18 at 4:02PM CDT by NWS Brownsville TX

HLSBRO This product covers The Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas ***TROPICAL STORM WARNING IN EFFECT*** NEW INFORMATION --------------- * CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - None * CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Cameron Island, Coastal Cameron, Coastal Kenedy, Coastal Willacy, Kenedy Island, and Willacy Island * STORM INFORMATION: - About 400 miles southeast of Brownsville TX or about 430 miles southeast of Port Mansfield TX - 22.1N 92.7W - Storm Intensity 40 mph - Movement North or 360 degrees at 6 mph SITUATION OVERVIEW ------------------ At 4 PM CDT, a large area of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche continues to remain unorganized and move north at 6 mph. This system is expected to slowly strengthen and begin to move more westward tonight into Wednesday and approach the central Mexico Gulf coast Wednesday evening as a Tropical Storm. Tropical Storm Warnings remain in effect for coastal waters, barrier islands and coastal portions of Kenedy, Willacy and Cameron counties. The main hazard across the lower Texas coast into Deep South Texas remains flooding rainfall of generally 4-8 inches, with localized rainfall amounts up to 10 or more inches, especially towards the coast. Beach and marine conditions are becoming dangerous as well, with coastal flooding of up to 3 feet likely, deadly rip currents, high surf, gusty winds, and low visibility in heavy rainfall. The strongest winds of this tropical system may reside well north of any circulation. Tropical wind gusts up to 50 mph are likely offshore and potentially into coastal portions of Kenedy, Willacy, and Cameron counties. Higher winds gusts are also possible inland with bands of showers and thunderstorms. POTENTIAL IMPACTS ----------------- * FLOODING RAIN: Protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible extensive impacts across Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley. Potential impacts include: - Major rainfall flooding may prompt many evacuations and rescues. - Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become dangerous rivers. Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed. - Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed away. Many places where flood waters may cover escape routes. Streets and parking lots become filled with several feet of water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become dangerous. Many road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed out. Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant impacts across Deep South Texas. * WIND: Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across the lower Texas coast and coastal portions of Kenedy, Willacy, and Cameron counties. Potential impacts in this area include: - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about. - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over. - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways. - Scattered power and communications outages. Elsewhere across The Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas, little to no impact is anticipated. * SURGE: Protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts across the lower Texas coast. Potential impacts in this area include: - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore. - Sections of near-shore roads and exposed parking lots could become covered with some surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where surge water covers the road. - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents. - Minor damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings. Elsewhere across The Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas, little to no impact is anticipated. * TORNADOES: Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts across The Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas. Potential impacts include: - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans during tropical events. - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power and communications disruptions. - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS ---------------------------------- * OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION: Now is the time to complete all preparations to protect life and property in accordance with your emergency plan. Ensure you are in a safe location before the onset of strong winds or possible flooding. If you are a visitor, be sure to know the name of the city or town in which you are staying and the name of the county in which it resides. Listen for these locations in local news updates. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities. Storm surge is the leading killer associated with tropical storms and hurricanes! Make sure you are in a safe area away from the surge zone. Even if you are not in a surge-prone area, you could find yourself cutoff by flood waters during and after the storm. Heed evacuation orders issued by the local authorities. Rapidly rising flood waters are deadly. If you are in a flood-prone area, consider moving to higher ground. Never drive through a flooded roadway. Remember, turn around don't drown! Closely monitor weather.gov, NOAA Weather radio or local news outlets for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather warnings. * ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION: - For information on appropriate preparations see ready.gov - For information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.org - For additional disaster preparedness information see redcross.org NEXT UPDATE ----------- The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather Service in Brownsville TX around 10 PM CDT, or sooner if conditions warrant.
