On Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center highlighted a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms in the southwestern Caribbean Sea. The potential for development is low. This system will likely not become a named storm.

By the end of the week or early this weekend, this system will likely be in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Even though there is still some uncertainty regarding how this system is going to evolve, it will still likely bring heavy rain to the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coasts.

As tropical moisture continues to increase and this system gets closer to the ArkLaTex late this weekend through early next week, our rain chances will begin to increase.

First Alert Meteorologist Ron Young has an updated look at our ran chances on-air now.
