Tropical Storm Arlene kicks off 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season

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.
