HOUSTON – Today’s weather will be the worst of the next ten days as Hurricane Delta moves close enough to Southeast Texas to provide us with 50% rain chances with sustained winds between 35-45 mph along the Galveston and Chambers county coastlines. Wind gusts of 50-60mph are possible as those coastal areas are under Tropical Storm Warnings.

Hurricane Delta continues to be a massive, dangerous and major hurricane. Landfall is expected along the Louisiana coast just east of Cameron some late this afternoon or early evening. The storm is being pushed into Louisiana due to a trough of low pressure moving into Texas. Although Delta will be to our east, the rain and wind will make for an uncomfortable day.

After Delta, the next ten days are warmer than normal with very little rain. As an extra bonus we’ll see two “cold” fronts that will provide us with a couple of much needed cooler reminders that we are in Fall.

After a rough day today, the next ten days look great!
