The National Hurricane Center in Miami, Fla. is continuing to track Potential Tropical Cyclone Three in the Gulf of Mexico.

The storm is expected to reach tropical storm strength on Friday afternoon ahead of landfall along the Louisiana coastline sometime Friday night/Saturday morning.

Despite becoming better organized, the storm will likely only be a minimal tropical storm meaning only heavy rain and increased surf is expected in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

As the storm makes landfall and pulls away, Deep South Texas will be in subsidence or sinking air. This means the Rio Grande Valley will see hot, dry conditions through the Father’s Day holiday weekend.
