MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Harvey continues to dominate weather headlines, as it dumps even more torrential rain across southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana.
First, an update on Harvey:
The latest advisory as of 4:00am CT (5:00am ET) has Harvey with maximum sustained winds at 45 mph. It is about 100 miles ESE of Port O'Connor Texas moving east at 3 mph. This slow movement will only aggravate the flood situation more. In addition, the fact that Harvey's center of circulation is over water will allow for more of these rain bands to continue to form, pushing into southern Misissippi, Louisiana, and Texas.
The latest forecast track does not have the system exiting Texas/Louisiana until Thursday Night into Friday morning. Before then, the rain should die down somewhat, allowing for a slow improving trend across areas like Houston and others impacted by major flooding.
Advisories for Harvey:
A TROPICAL STORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR... * MESQUITE BAY TO INTRACOASTAL CITY A STORM SURGE WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR... * PORT BOLIVAR TO MORGAN CITY
In addition to Harvey, Invest 92L (also known as Potential Tropical Cyclone 10) still shows a medium potential for developing into a tropical storm. The system has a 50% chance to develop into one within the next two days.
It will likely bring gusty winds to the North Carolina and Virginia coastlines today with some areas of heavy rain along the coasts. The storm will quickly move northeast, away from the U.S. after today.
Advisories for Potential Tropical Cyclone 10:
A TROPICAL STORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR... * NORTH OF SURF CITY TO DUCK * ALBEMARLE SOUND * PAMLICO SOUND A TROPICAL STORM WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR... * SURF CITY TO LITTLE RIVER INLET
Plus, we are also following a new disturbance south of the Cabo Verde islands. The disturbance is being designated as Invest 93L. This system has an 80% chance of development in the next five days.
Models continue to hint at a tropical storm developing and moving north of the Lesser Antilles, but where this system will ultimately end up is still unclear. We will keep a close watch on this and all other systems in the Atlantic.
