Tropical Depression Two Landfall at South Padre Island
      Thu Jul 08 2010 07:00 AM

12 Noon EDT 8 July 2010 Update
Tropical Depression Two never became a storm, and may have fallen back to open wave state, but officially it made landfall at 10:30 CDT (11:30PM EDT) this morning. It accelerated this morning and made it's a approach about 6 hours earlier than expected.

Landfall was over South Padre Island.

It is bringing more rain to South Texas, but is otherwise fairly tame.

Outside of this there is nothing on track for development this weekend.

Original Update
Tropical Depression Two has actually weakened overnight, but the National Hurricane Center is still tracking it. The expected landfall time is around 5 PM CDT This evening.

Again the main threat is just rainfall. Hurricane Alex went through Northern Mexico last week causing flooding in many areas, so this aspect of it is not welcome. Other than that though, it's not much. The threat of tornadoes isn't very high from this system either.

It is forecast to become a storm before landfall, but there is a good chance it will never make it. The center of circulation lost a lot of convection overnight, it may reform some of it today, but it'll be borderline if it makes it to Tropical Storm status. Actually the upwelling from Alex last week may be one of the reasons it does not make it to Tropical Storm status.



After this system, there's an outside chance (very very low) that the system east of the Carolinas, but the best chance is that it brings rainfall to the northeast later in the week as a non-tropical system.

Beyond that there is a wave off Africa that probably won't become anything because of the Saharan Air Layer (Sal) dust concentration that will likely slow any development.
