BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - An area of low pressure is expected to form over the southern Gulf of Mexico early next week.

As of the Friday evening update, the National Hurricane Center has upped the chances for tropical development of this low pressure system to 30% over the next 5 days.

While this is something to monitor closely in the coming days, as of right now this is no immediate concern for Southeast Texas or the Brazos Valley. The reason being -- there is still quite a bit of uncertainty in the strength and track of this system since the area of low pressure in question hasn’t formed yet. Bottom line: this is something that we are going to monitor closely over next few days, so keep checking back!
