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

1. Northwestern Gulf of Mexico:
Showers and thunderstorms remain disorganized in association with a 
trough of low pressure located over the northwestern Gulf of 
Mexico.  Development of this system, if any, is expected to be slow 
to occur while it moves slowly west-southwestward at 5 to 10 mph, 
approaching the Texas coast tonight and Saturday, and moving 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 on Saturday, if necessary.
