As of 11am Thursday morning Tropical Depression #2 was located at 16.0N, 97.0W, or just 32 miles to the northeast of Brownsville, Texas and moving to the northwest at 10 to 15 mph. Winds were sustained at 35 mph, with the storm not showing any signs of strengthening. There is a slim chance that the depression could strengthen to a tropical storm before making landfall near Brownsville by early afternoon.
The National Hurricane Center has issued a tropical storm warning for the Texas coast south of Baffin Bay to the mouth of the Rio Grande. In Mexico, a warning is out from Rio San Fernando to the Rio Grande.
The Rio Grande is already high because of drenching rains from last week's Hurricane Alex. And reservoirs along the U.S.-Mexico border have risen to their highest levels in decades.
