Rainstorms expected in Laredo through next week due to potential tropical storm


The National Weather Service reports an increased chance of rain through next week across Laredo and surrounding areas, with southern Texas feeling the effects of weather systems being monitored in Mexico.

The probability of above average rain is mainly due to the potential tropical cyclone which is being monitored over the western Gulf of Mexico. It’s similar to one that formed late last weekend that brought heavy downpours to southern Texas, including Laredo.

Due to the potential tropical cyclone, a tropical storm warning – which indicates tropical storm level winds – has been issued for the lower Texas coast, but this warning currently excludes Webb County and surrounding areas.

While things are expected to remain relatively dry Saturday in Webb County, Sunday there is a 30% chance of thunderstorms primarily in the morning, dropping to 20% in the evening. The same 20% chance is observed from Monday evening to Tuesday afternoon.

Then on Tuesday evening, the luck increases to 30%, where it will remain throughout Thursday, when the luck increases to 40% until Friday.

Despite the current forecast for Saturday’s weather, the NWS said Webb County should brace for precipitation, indicating Webb County is under threat of torrential downpours.

According to the tweet, Laredoans should be prepared for between 1 and 3 inches of rainfall, which could lead to flash flooding.
