The only impact from this system for southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana is a high rain chance for this week.

The second is a tropical wave nearing the Windward Islands. This wave has a high (70 percent) chance of tropical development in the next 48 hours and a 90 percent chance of development through the next five days.

It will likely will be a tropical depression as it moves over the Windwards into the Caribbean Sea.

This system will continue to move westward into Central America and NO impacts are expected from this system for southeast Texas or southwest Louisiana.

The third is a new tropical wave in the middle Atlantic southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.

This system will move off to the west-northwest over the next several days. It is still too early to say if this system will enter the Gulf of Mexico or have any impacts for Southeast Texas or southwest Louisiana.
