Thunderstorms are beginning to redevelop near the estimated center. Rather rapid development into a tropical storm is expected during the next 36 hours. A continued northwest track toward the central Texas coast is forecast through Friday. More rapid intensification is expected on Thursday and Friday as Harvey approaches Texas. Current indications are that Harvey will pose a major threat for excessive rainfall and significant inland flooding over portions of Texas Friday through Monday. It is worth noting that Harvey will move slowly over Texas this weekend and may end up moving back over the northwest Gulf early next week resulting in a threat for re-development.
