T.S. Hermine To Hit South Of Texas-Mexico Border

Tropical Storm Hermine is strengthening and headed toward the northwestern Gulf coast on Monday.

She will probably make landfall around midnight just south of the U.S.-Mexico border.

It looks like the Houston region will not get a direct hit, but we are going to get some major rain in the 24-36 hours.

Southeast Texas will see some rain from the outer bands of Hermine, and the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for the greater Houston area.

Widespread totals of 1 to 3 inches of rain are likely, with up to 8 inches in isolated areas.

There is a small chance of tornadoes along and just inland from the Gulf, and tides along the upper coast will be 2 to 2.5 feet above normal, peaking tonight or early tomorrow.

In any case, we will be HIGH but certainly NOT DRY!!!
