UPDATE ON HURRICANE HARVEY

The latest information on Hurricane Harvey as of 9:00 am 8/25/2017 is:

About 130 miles or 205 km SE of Corpus Christi, TX
About 135 miles or 215 km SSE of Port O’Connor, TX

Latest forecast track from the National Hurricane Center has Harvey making landfall at 1:00 am Saturday morning with maximum sustained winds of 120 mph, which is a category 3 storm. Landfall is expected northeast of Corpus Christi, TX.

Impacts for the DFW area are expected to be quite minimal given the latest track of this storm. Cloud cover and some rain will be possible, but the heaviest rain and winds will be well southeast of our forecast area. Indirectly, since we will be on the subsident side of the storm with stronger northerly flow aloft, low temperatures may begin to benefit from that and drop into the 60s by early next week.
