Remember Allison?

Accuweather meteorologist Joe Bastardi isn’t predicting another weather bomb like Tropical Storm Allison–which dropped thirty-plus inches of rain on Houston in June of 2001–he just thinks this thing dubbed 90L that’s turning lazily off the northwestern Texas coast could become nasty by Tursday and might even head northeast to Louisiana: "Moral is people on the Texas and Louisiana gulf coasts should be keeping a wary eye open for this, if they have not been already."

UPDATE: KVET meteorologist Troy Kimmel alerts us to the Miami Hurricane Center’s dispatch of Air Force recon into 90L, which is "becoming better organized" and could be a tropical depression later today.

Next rainmaker?

Not considered terribly likely to become a tropical depression, much less a storm, but worth watching if you’re on the coast. Scroll to the second image at the second link.

UPDATE: Instead, it looks like Central Texas gets clobbered tonight and tomorrow by a passing cold front out of the northwest, followed by another one on Friday.

MORE ON TUESDAY: Can’t get LCRA meteorologist Bob Rose’s permalink to work, but he says this thing (which might become a tropical depression tonight) will contribute to what looks like a week of rain. Familiar. It poured at the rancho this morning as Mr. Boy left for school. Finally quit at noon.
