Just as Harvey was finally starting to move on from the Gulf Coast, the National Hurricane Center says an area of low pressure could form over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by the weekend.
"Development, if any, of this system is expected to be slow to occur as the low moves slowly northward," read the 1 p.m. Wednesday tropical weather outlook. "If this system does develop, it could bring additional rainfall to portions of the Texas and Louisiana coasts."
"However, any rainfall forecast is uncertain at this time range and it is too soon to determine any specific impacts," the update added.
The low currently has a low chance of further development over the next five days.
Tropical Storm Irma Forms In Eastern Atlantic
Forecasters are also watching Tropical Storm Irma, which formed Wednesday in the far eastern Atlantic and is no threat to land at this time.
