TS Erin: Heavy Rain and possible Tornadoes for the Texas Coast

Tropical Storm warnings are in effect for the Texas coast as TS Erin is set to make landfall sometime Thursday near Corpus Christi, TX. The threat of localized flooding is present with QPF's around 7'' near the Corpus / Port Aransas region.

Brief, weak tornadoes are possible beginning tonight and going into the day on Thursday from and area near Galveston south along the coast to about Corpus Christi. The moist, unstable tropical air mass will be in place along with favorable wind profiles in this region to support isolated tropical type funnels, waterspouts, and weak tornadoes. SPC has just raised their tornado probabilities in the latest outlook.
