NWS Monitoring Low Pressure Trough in the Gulf

LIBERTY, July 5, 2013 - According to Roger Erickson Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service, The National Weather Service in Lake Charles will be closely monitoring the western Gulf of Mexico this weekend. A weak surface low pressure trough will head towards the central to upper Texas coast by Sunday morning.

There is a very small chance of this system developing tropical characteristics.

However, we are still expecting the following weather from this system.

Rainfall: 1-3 inches of rain will be possible along and south of the I-10 corridor to the coast of southeast Texas and southwest/south central Louisiana. Some street flooding will be possible.

Winds: Along and south of the I-10 corridor to the coast of southeast Texas and southwest/south central Louisiana, southeast winds could become gusty on Sunday, blowing as high as 20-40 mph at times. This could result in scattered power outages.

Tides: Near the coast, tides will run around 1-2 feet above normal on Sunday. This will result in minor coastal flooding.
