The National Hurricane Center has issued the first forecast cone for what is now known as Potential Tropical Cyclone Two.

It is expected to be named Tropical Storm Barry by tomorrow, and make landfall along the Louisiana coast as a hurricane sometime Saturday.

Here in South Texas, we will have no direct impacts. There is a chance, though, for coastal flooding and a high rip current risk.

There will not be a lot of local rainfall. Rainfall totals over the next several days are expected to range from zero to, maybe, six tenths of an inch.

We'll continue to keep you posted on the development of this system. Remember, it is hurricane season and you should always be prepared.
