We have been tracking Invest 91L for the last couple of days. This afternoon, the system has become much better organized and is very close to being upgraded to Tropical Storm Bill by The National Hurricane Center. The storm is expected to make landfall sometime tomorrow morning on the middle Texas gulf coast. The heaviest rain will be to the east and northeast of the center. We anticipate that tropical storm warnings will be issued later today for a good majority of the Texas coastline as tropical storm conditions will begin during the early morning hours on Tuesday along the coast.
The main threat from the system will be heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding in areas where the heaviest rain bands setup. Rainfall rates of 2"-4" inches per hour can be expected in the strongest bands. We expect the system will likely peak out with winds of 50 - 55 mph before landfall. The heavy rainfall and gusty winds will track well inland along & east of the I-35 corridor. The low pressure area will not weaken much inland due to favorable atmospheric conditions. If you are a resident or have interests along the Texas Coast or central & east Texas, please continue to monitor this developing weather story through Wednesday. Please check back later this evening once the first advisory from the National Hurricane Center has been issued for more detailed information on upcoming Tropical Storm Bill.
