A storm system could form Monday over the northwest Gulf of Mexico, increasing the chance of much-needed rain in the Houston area early next week, forecasters said.

A cold front crossing Texas is expected to meet warmer weather early Monday and settle over coastal waters, according to the National Weather Service Houston/Galveston office. This could lead to a low pressure system that the National Hurricane Center monitors for cyclone formation.

There is a low probability – 20% – of a cyclone forming in five days.

“If the system forms, any development would likely be slow to occur as it drifts west into the north-central or northwest Gulf of Mexico,” the weather service said.

Rainfall amounts will depend on how the system forms over the next few days.

Temperatures are expected to drop to around 90 degrees by Tuesday, Houston meteorologist Eric Berger wrote on Space City Weather, noting that “these rains only seem to be good for our parched region.”
