A tropical wave continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms in the southwest Gulf of Mexico. Upper-level winds are not conducive to development today. However, that will change on Sunday and Monday as the system moves to the north/northwest. A tropical depression and eventually a tropical storm is likely to form over the next few days. If the system does indeed become a tropical storm, it will likely be named Nicholas. 
Austin will experience consistent rain in the coming days and possibly weeks, requiring us to be prepared in order to stay safe and help others.
The City of Austin has clear guidelines and resources for when it floods.
- Be alert to your surroundings.
- Monitor local media.
- Avoid driving.
- Stay away from creeks, trails, culverts, ponds and other drainage infrastructure.
- If water starts to rise, seek higher ground. This may mean getting on your roof.
