MOHSEP issues updates on tropical depression Harvey

The National Hurricane Center is anticipating that with a 40 percent chance 92L will evolve into some form tropical system by the weekend. Environmental conditions are not expected to be conducive for development of this system during the next couple of days while it moves west-northwestward at 15 to 20 miles per hour. But its remnants have entered very warm water in the Gulf of Mexico and will nearly certainly return to tropical storm strength. These storms will be scattered in coverage and will come to an end by early evening.

The system formerly known as Harvey is generating a lot of interest and an increased level of concern for residents along the Gulf Coast. This amount of rain can occur if Harvey remains poorly organized and keeps moving along into the south-central United States.

Several aircraft reconnaissance flights are scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday to investigate Harvey's remnants, the NHC said.

The National Hurricane Center has the outlined area of risk with a 100% chance of development in the next five days.

Harvey may be wedged between two areas of high pressure aloft, one over the Desert Southwest and a weaker one over the central Gulf of Mexico.

Total buys Maersk's oil business in $7.45bn deal
Moller–Maersk 97.5 million shares, based on the average Total share price on the 20 business days prior to August 21. The deal may yet be the Maersk's biggest single transaction yet in the first steps to break itself up.

For now, areas along the Texas Gulf Coast are currently under the biggest threat, this could include Corpus Christi.

The former possibility may still happen too, but it's still too early to tell exactly how Harvey may interact with the stalled front.

Winds will be east to northeast at 10 to 15 knots.

Texas should be on the alert for a potential tropical system by late in the week into the weekend.
