Miami, Fla.(970 WFLA)-Shower activity has changed little in organization in association with a broad area of low pressure located over the western Gulf of Mexico. Although upper-level winds appear conducive for development, this low only has a short period of time to develop into a tropical depression before it moves inland over northeastern Mexico and southern Texas later today.
An Air Force reconnaissance plane is scheduled to investigate the system later today, if necessary.
Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected across portions of northeastern Mexico and Texas later today and Saturday.
