A new storm has formed in the Atlantic and her name is Rita. Model runs are all over the place with this one as per the 5PM NHC advisory. Even though none of the model runs are directly over the area, atleast two of the model runs steer it between New Orleans to the Alabama coast. Two other model runs (and from what I hear are the most dependable) steer it towards Texas. Let's hope the only thing this brings to SOWAL is more sand for the beaches.
