Harvey Video Analysis: Significant Flooding in Texas Likely


Good afternoon! As we speak, Harvey has regenerated into a Tropical Depression and will soon become a Tropical Storm. It will continue to slowly move northwest over the next couple of days around the periphery of a ridge in the Gulf of Mexico. There are still a lot of uncertainties regarding its exact track and strength, but confidence is increasing in it strengthening to a strong Tropical Storm to a borderline weak Hurricane before making landfall somewhere in Southern Texas. But the big story will likely not be the winds from Harvey, but more likely the potential for significant flooding. The steering flow in the atmosphere is very weak, which will allow Harvey to essentially stall in Texas for multiple days, providing a strong fetch of tropical moisture directly into the Texas coast. All of the details can be found in our latest video:
