Tropical Storm Arlene formed in the Bay of Campeche this evening, kicking off the 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season. The National Hurricane Center predicts that Arlene will remain a tropical storm as it drifts westward. Arlene should stay well south of the Texas/ Mexico border, however, onshore winds in South Texas could produce slightly elevated water levels and waves. Storm surge along the South Texas Coast should remain less than 3 feet above Mean Sea Level.
