Tropical Storm Edouard gaining speed over Gulf

While Edouard isn't a terribly strong storm ( yet ), it is getting better organized and looks to threaten Southeast Texas. On its present track, Edouard should make landfall Tuesday afternoon as a strong tropical storm or a weak hurricane. That would mean top sustained winds between 70 and 80 mph. Areas around Houston and Galveston look to be in line to bear the brunt of the storm. Storm surge should be between 4 and 8 feet, isolated tornadoes will be possible, and heavy rain of 2 to 6 inches will be possible. Again not a huge storm, but something to be prepared for.
A tropical storm warning is in effect from the mouth of the Mississippi River westward to San Luis Pass in Texas. A hurricane watch is up from west of Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to Port O'Connor, Texas.
