For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Northwestern Gulf of Mexico:
A trough of low pressure located over the northwestern Gulf of 
Mexico is producing limited shower activity. Development of this 
system, if any, is expected to be slow to occur while it moves 
slowly west-southwestward at 5 to 10 mph and approaches the Texas 
coast today and tonight, then moves inland over southern Texas on 
Sunday. Regardless of development, locally heavy rains are possible 
along portions of the Texas coast through the weekend. For more 
information about the potential for heavy rainfall, please see 
products issued by your local National Weather Service office and 
the Weather Prediction Center. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter 
aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system later today, if 
necessary.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
