Alex II: Tropical Depression #2

Posted in Tropical Weather, Weather News at 1:01 pm by Rebekah

Late last night a new tropical depression formed off of the south Texas / northeastern Mexican coast.  Tropical Depression 2 (TD2) was forecast by the National Hurricane Center to briefly become Tropical Storm Bonnie by this morning, but at 10:15 am CDT, TD2 made landfall near Brownsville, Texas.

The primary threat with TD2 is heavy rainfall; this rain is coming down on areas already saturated by former Hurricane Alex last week.

The remnant low will likely follow a similar path to that of Alex, tracking northward up towards Oklahoma, interacting with a front and bringing more showers and thunderstorms to the Southern Plains.
