ELSEWHERE IN THE TROPICS: We continue to track an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms stretching across the Bahamas, southern Florida, and the adjacent waters is associated with a trough of low pressure. It could possible intensify to a Category 2, according to the National Weather Service.

Blood said the latest track projected the storm would make landfall in Matagorda, but cautioned Harvey's path is unpredictable.
A tropical wave is expected to bring heavy rains, wind and possible flooding to South Florida starting Tuesday, forecasters said.
If the cold front stalls out south of our area, Harvey's heavy rain may stay confined south of Temple and near the Gulf Coast. "Southern Louisiana may pick up 10-15" of rainfall wile the rest of Louisiana and central/southern MS may see 3-7". We'll have to see how this plays out but it would be beneficial rain if it plays out that way. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Harvey could become a hurricane on Friday.
