Post Tropical Storm Hermine
An area of low pressure intensified into a tropical storm this morning in the Bay of Campeche. Although Hermine is fairly close to the Mexican coast, it is only about 280 miles south-southeast of Brownsville and should strengthen further today.

Our Labor Day activities will be curtailed by a 50% chance of rain this afternoon. :roll

Our chances go up to 80% tomorrow - but at least the high is forecast to only be 87 degrees F. :clap

Hurricane watch issued for Texas, Mexico ahead of Hermine

(CNN) -- A hurricane watch was issued Monday for portions of the Texas and Mexico coasts ahead of Tropical Storm Hermine, which forecasters said could approach hurricane strength before making landfall late Monday or early Tuesday.

However, tracking maps show Hermine remaining a tropical storm as it makes landfall early Tuesday near the Texas and Mexico border.

A hurricane watch stretches from Rio San Fernando, Mexico, northward to Baffin Bay, Texas, the National Hurricane Center said. A tropical storm warning was in effect for La Cruz, Mexico, northward to Port O'Connor, Texas.

As of 1 p.m. (2 p.m. ET), Hermine's maximum sustained winds had increased slightly to about 60 mph (95 kph). Additional strengthening was expected, forecasters said.

The storm's center was located about 85 miles (135 kilometers) east-northeast of La Pesca, Mexico, and about 140 miles (225 kilometers) south-southeast of Brownsville, Texas. It was moving north-northwest at near 14 mph (22 kph). Tropical storm-force winds extended outward up to 105 miles from the storm's center.

Tropical Storm Hermine spreads strong winds, heavy rains through Texas

(CNN) -- Tropical Storm Hermine pummeled southern Texas Tuesday morning, packing torrential rains and damaging winds, along with the possibility of tornadoes.

As of 8 a.m. ET, the center of Hermit was located about 35 miles (60 kilometers) southwest of Mathis, Texas, and about 50 miles (80 kilometers) west of Corpus Christi, Texas, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm's maximum sustained winds were about 45 mph (75 kph) with higher gusts, and the storm was moving north-northwest at near 17 mph (28 kph).

Additional weakening is forecast, and Hermine is expected to become a tropical depression later Tuesday

Hermine's rains cause mess in Texas, at least 2 deaths :candle

ARLINGTON, Texas — The slow-moving remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine caused water rescues, evacuations, at least two deaths and commuting headaches in central and north Texas on Wednesday, just as a new tropical storm formed in the deep Atlantic.

In central Texas, some areas have seen 15 inches of rain over two days. :shock:

San Antonio on Wednesday saw record rain and the closure of 35 roadways. The city on Tuesday saw power outages to 230,000 customers.

In nearby New Braunfels, residents of up to 1,000 homes along the Guadalupe and Comal rivers were urged to evacuate overnight after Hermine dumped torrential rain across the region. By late morning, most of the evacuation orders were lifted.

Much of Arlington was under water, with firefighters using ladders to reach residents stranded in the upper floors of their homes in one subdivision.

Coffee-colored floodwaters rushed past roller coaster tracks at a Six Flags amusement park.

Bewildered residents surprised by the extent of the flooding waded through waist-deep water in the streets.
