Tropical Storm Arlene has formed over the Bay of Campeche, in the southern Gulf of Mexico. As of the 5 am update, she had winds around 40 mph. The center is moving to the WNW around 8 mph, so it should blow into the Mexican coast early tomorrow morning. I think south TX will get some rain out of this, but not much. Brownsville may see a ½” at the most, but hopefully that changes. TX needs rain! By the way, Arlene was the first named storm of the 2005 season as well, since the list of names gets repeated every 6 years (unless it does major damage, or creates massive loss of life, such as Katrina- then the name gets retired from the list).
