A tropical disturbance is already being monitored Friday by the National Hurricane Center – one day ahead of the hurricane season’s official start.

The area of disturbed weather is near the Yucatan Peninsula and has a 30 percent chance of developing into a tropical system in the next five days, the hurricane center reports.

Regardless of development, the disturbance is expected to mostly affect the Bay of Campeche and southern Mexico.

As rain chances increase during the next week with the disturbance, the Texas coast could see a threat for coastal flooding and rip currents.

Now is the time to begin reviewing your preparedness plans.

Also, be sure to pick up Sunday’s Advocate for a story on what the city and county are doing to prepare for the next hurricane. Sunday’s edition will also include tips and other tidbits on how to prepare.
