Waiting for Matthew to form/Cold Front Heading this Way

Watching disturbance in the Caribbean this morning as this could become Tropical Storm Matthew by this time Thursday. Hurricane Recon will check it out later today. Big questions are how strong it will get and where it will go. Trough moving across US may eventually steer it northward (toward Florida?) or it could stall out in western Caribbean and eventually be drawn north by a later trough or even another possibility. Models show a variety of possible tracks. So, stay tuned.

Tropical Storm Lisa is way out in Atlantic and not threatening any land areas. Will continue to monitor.

In Pacific, Tropical Depression Georgette is moving northward across the Gulf of California having made landfall on the Baja peninsula as a weak tropical storm. Will likely bring some heavy rain to the southwest US (in particular Arizona) before getting drawn into the trough moving eastward across the US.

Speaking of that trough, it will swing a cold front through Houston on Sunday. Look for some thunderstorms beforehand (especially on Saturday and possibly early Sunday). Then Monday through at least the middle of the coming week...sunshine, low humidity, lows in 60s, highs in 80s.

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
