Elsa weakened to a tropical storm overnight.
The National Weather Service said confidence is “very high” it will affect the far eastern Gulf and Florida likely as a tropical storm.
No impacts from Elsa are expected for Southeast Texas.
For this weekend, scattered mainly late day Saturday and evening thunderstorms are expected, Meteorologist-in-Charge Andy Patrick said.
“The best chance for thunderstorms will be along the I-10 corridor late (Saturday) afternoon with decreasing activity after sunset,” Patrick said. “Persistent bursts of heavy rain could lead to localized flooding.”
