The National Weather Service advises Tropical Storm Alberto has formed in the western Gulf of Mexico.

Residents along the coasts of Texas and Mexico should brace for heavy rains, coastal flooding, and gusty winds.

As of 10:00 AM, Alberto was located at 22.2 North, 95.0 West, and moving west at 9 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds are currently at 40 mph.

While impacts are expected to be limited for Acadiana, with minor coastal flooding, gusty winds, and passing rain, residents in Texas and Mexico should prepare for flooding rains and more significant coastal flooding.

Residents along the Texas coast from San Luis Pass southward to the mouth of the Rio Grande, and extending into northeast Mexico, are under a Tropical Storm Warning. Heavy rainfall is expected to be the most significant impact from this storm system, regardless of its further development.

Rainfall totals could range from 5 to 10 inches across South Texas and northeast Mexico, with some areas potentially experiencing even higher amounts.
