Tropical Storm Marco is weakening today (Monday, August 24, 2020) yet it still brings the risk of heavy rain, storm surge, strong winds and tornadoes as the system moves inland.
Marco is forecast to move west along the Louisiana and Texas coast Tuesday and Wednesday.
Tropical Storm Laura is south of Cuba and will move into the Gulf of Mexico tonight. Unlike Marco, where conditions weren’t favorable for the storm to strengthen, Laura is going to move into very favorable conditions for strengthening and will become a very dangerous hurricane.
Heavy rain, strong winds, storm surge and inland flooding from Laura could be deadly. All interests along the Gulf need to watch the path of Laura over the next few days.
