Emergency personnel along our coast are keeping a close eye on TS Harvey, which is expected to be a major hurricane when it makes landfall along the Texas coast. There is a possibility this system will stall over Texas, re-emerge into the Gulf, and make a second landfall on our MS coast.
As of 10am this morning:
The center of TS Harvey is at latitude 24.0 North, longitude 93.3 West, moving NNW at about 10mph. A turn to the northwest is expected later today, and Harvey's forward speed is forecast to slow down during the next couple of days. On this track, Harvey will approach the middle Texas coast Friday, and make landfall Friday night or early Saturday, and then stall near the middle Texas coast through the weekend. Maximum sustained winds are up to 65mph with higher gusts. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 90 miles from the center. The minimum central pressured is 982 mb.
