*TD9 Upgraded to Tropical Storm Humberto*
At 1:00pm CDT –
– The center of recently upgraded Tropical Storm Humberto was located 70 miles south-southwest of Galveston, Texas. Movement is towards the north at 6mph, maximum sustained winds are near 45mph, and minimum surface pressure is 1005mb.
– No changes to posted watches or warnings.
– Humberto is expected to make landfall around midnight.
Humberto may strengthen some more but shouldn't get too strong as it moves onshore overnight. The main issue will be excessive rainfall near the cyclone.
There are details to be worked out regarding what happens to Humberto once it is inland and that will be reviewed later.
