Update Wednesday morning:
Hurricane Alex should arrive onshore in Mexico later tonight with heavy rainfall and very strong winds coming along with it. Still looks like we'll see the remnants of Alex this weekend, especially Sunday night and again for parts of the area Monday.
As of this writing (early Tuesday afternoon), our first Tropical Storm of the season is just hours away from becoming the first hurricane of the season. At current speed and track, it will take the brunt of that storm through extreme northern parts of Mexico and extreme southern Texas, around Padre Island. Right now, it looks like it will make landfall later Wednesday night.
Right now, the storm surge could exceed 4 feet as it comes onshore. In addition, there could be over 12" of rain, just from this system alone through the end of the week.
The interesting thing is, we may see some of the remnants from this tropical storm arrive this weekend in the form of showers and storms. Let me qualify that a bit more... we're expecting a cold front to drop through the Upper Midwest for Sunday, and this cold front may be able to tap some of the remnants of Alex. If those remnants don't quite get tapped, rain chances for Sunday will still be there, but we may not have those Gully Washer types of storms like we see when the Gulf of Mexico fully gets tapped with all the moisture.
