Tropical rain turning to possible tropical threat

The area of low pressure responsible for ramping up our risk of rain is now catching the eye of the National Hurricane Center.

Roughly 200 miles east of Tampico, Mexico near the southern most portion of the state of Tamaulipas a developing area of low pressure is pushing much needed moisture and energy toward the Rio Grande Valley. But it is also gaining definition and becoming better organized as a tropical system.

The National Hurricane Center has placed a 50% probability the low will become at least a tropical depression by Friday before making landfall along the coast of Tamaulipas, Mexico well south of the Rio Grande Valley.

The NHC launched a reconnaissance aircraft to sniff around the area of low pressure in order to get more accurate readings.

No matter if the low remains a low or is bumped up to a TD it will just be a rain maker for Deep South Texas.
