Potential tropical system in the Gulf

Cindy is packing maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour and is almost stationary but is expected to resume a motion northwest later today. The storm system is not expected to strengthen on Tuesday and is forecast to weaken to a tropical depression on Wednesday. A tropical storm watch is in effect from High Island west to Luis Pass, Texas.

The storm's eye was about 125 miles southeast of Trinidad. The forecast shows an even wider area from southeastern Louisiana into the western Florida Panhandle could receive as much as 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain over three days.

Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the Texas and Louisiana coasts within the warning area Tuesday evening.

The storm warning is now in effect from High Island, Texas, to the mouth of the Pearl River, according to a report from The Weather Channel.

The system - potential tropical cyclone 3 - has a 90 percent chance of becoming a tropical storm in the next 48 hours.




If a tropical storm forms, it would be named Cindy.

The southern Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao are under a tropical storm watch.

The storm is projected to be near Marshall, Texas, and Shreveport, Louisiana, by early Friday morning.

The National Weather Service issued an expanded flash flood watch for the area Tuesday, and forecasters say the flooding threat will continue through Thursday night.
