Tropical Storm Don continues to gather strength, now packing winds of 50 MPH. It is forecast to strengthen some more before landfall in Central/South Texas tomorrow night as a strong tropical storm or possibly minimal hurricane. I'd give it a 50% chance of becoming a hurricane by landfall. Residents in the Corpus Christi area or about 20 miles within' landfall point should expect localized flooding and minor wind damage from this system but nothing extreme. Isolated to scattered power outages may occur as well as downed tree limbs and minor damage to mobile homes but this should be more of a positive event than negative. Meanwhile in the Central Atlantic, a tropical wave is showing some signs of organization and we should watch this closely this weekend and next week for this possibly becoming our fifth named storm Emily. The NHC gives this a 20% chance of TC formation by Saturday night. It is generally forecast to enter the Caribbean but the exact long-term path is unknown.
