Hurricane update - 3 August

Tropical storm Edouard has formed off the Mississippi delta this afternoon (local time) and is moving west whilst intensifying. The system might reach hurricane strength by the time it makes landfall, at around midnight on Tuesday morning, in the northeast of Texas.

Tropical storm warnings are in force from the Mississippi delta west towards Intracostal City (tropical storm conditions likely within 24 hours), with a watch in place from Intracostal City west towards Port O'Connor, Texas. Here, tropical storm conditions are possible within 36 hours.

Please monitor output from NHC at 3-hourly intervals, as well as local hurricane statements, which are likely to be introduced later this evening.

  3. I've been watching the coverage on Edourad our local station has been giving.  We have had yet another weekend of horrendous storms, tornado warnings, golf ball size hail and high winds.  The past two weeks of storms are the worst I have ever experienced, they are downright scary.  I hope this isn't setting the scene for hurricanes to hit us in September - that seems to be our time for hurricanes if they make it this far north.  I know you will keep an eye open for me!!!  :)
