This system may actually steal moisture from the Houston region and lower the chances for rain in Southeast Texas through the weekend.

"The rain will die out and become light and patchy as it clears across the South early on Friday, and temperatures are likely to be a few degrees lower, but just briefly", said Sky News' Isobel Lang. This disturbance is expected to move slowly westward across the tropical Atlantic Ocean for the next several days.

We're in the peak of hurricane season, and anytime a system is headed for the Gulf, it's a good idea to stay updated on the latest forecast.

The service gives the system a 60 percent chance of formation through five days.

The biggest system is Tropical Storm Gabrielle, which is far out in the Atlantic and does not pose any threat to land in the next couple days as it heads in the general direction of Ireland and Scotland, the National Hurricane Center says.

Stay tuned as officials continue tracking the development of this system. Both the GFS and the EURO have been hinting at a slight potential for a tropical system to develop over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, but the operational models and ensemble models are having a tough time with it.

And it's there that conditions could be a little more favorable for it to develop.

The first was about 650 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and had a 10 percent chance of development but is expected to move into an area that will be unfavorable for it to organize. The NHC expects to see slow development over the weekend where it has a 20 percent chance of tropical development.
