"Remember, Harvey right now is not an organized system, so track and intensity and rainfall potential will still change", Arredondo noted.

Two other low pressure systems farther east than PTC 9, about 2,000 miles from the coast of Florida, are also being watch, forecasters said.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: We will bring back some risk of scattered showers and storms on Saturday, and beyond that the weather will all depend on the tropical situation.

"Forecast models this early aren't always accurate when it comes to possible paths of storms", Williams said. It's the most rain we've seen for a single day in about a month. "There is a reasonable threat of minor flooding of streets and poor drainage areas". The remnant wave has slowed it westward movement, is nudging northward & will gradually move into an area - SW Gulf of Mexico (Bay of Campeche) - that's favorable for development.

The Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is monitoring the redevelopment of Tropical Storm Harvey in the Gulf of Mexico and the potential impacts to the Texas Coast. However, all models now agree on a track that will drive the system towards the western half of the Texas Gulf Coast by Friday. Harvey is likely to develop and strengthen to become at least a tropical storm. This is the time when powerful hurricanes are most likely to form off Africa and move toward the Southeast Coast. Short story: Formation chance through the next five days remains low at 20%.

Beyond the celestial show on Monday, much of the week looks fairly quiet. Keep the umbrella around Wednesday-Friday with intermittent showers & thunderstorms beginning in the late morning and persisting through the early evening.
