Meteorologists are monitoring an Atlantic disturbance

Meteorologists are monitoring an Atlantic disturbance expected to enter the Gulf of Mexico.

A disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico is likely to form a tropical system but unlikely to impact the Texas coast.

Wednesday morning, National Hurricane Center meteorologists estimated a 60% chance for formation in the next five days, according to a center bulletin.

Located in the southwest Atlantic Ocean, the disturbance was expected to continue west into the Gulf of Mexico.

Meanwhile in Victoria, there was a 50% chance for rain and storms Wednesday with partly sunny skies and a high of 95 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Less than a tenth of an inch of rain was expected.

Wednesday night, a 20% chance for precipitation mostly before 1 a.m. was forecast with partly cloudy skies and a low of 76 degrees.

Thursday, a 30% chance for rain was predicted with mostly sunny skies and a high of 94 degrees.

That night, mostly clear skies and a low of 74 degrees were predicted.
