  • Tropical storm conditions are occurring elsewhere in the warning area.
  • Tropical storm conditions are spreading across the tropical storm warning area along the upper Texas coast and will continue during the next several hours.

STORM SURGE:

  • The combination of storm surge and tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.
