TS Cindy Landfall Likely Texas/Louisiana Border


A tropical disturbance could make landfall near the Texas-Louisiana border as early as Wednesday afternoon as Tropical Storm Cindy, according to the National Weather Service.

As of Monday evening, the large system still remained nameless, but meteorologists predicted it had more than an 80 percent chance of turning into a named tropical storm.

The disturbance's predicted arrival and likely upgrade came shortly after another disturbance in the Atlantic was upgraded to a tropical storm named Bret.

It is still too early to say if Bret, near Venezuela Monday evening, will effect the Texas coast.

Forecasts as of Monday evening showed the storm likely to become Cindy rumbling north of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. It is expected to make landfall near Houston and then curve east away from the city before turning into a tropical depression. The storm will only slightly brush Houston with strong winds and rainfall.
