SAN ANTONIO — It's hurricane season and that means our eyes are on the tropics.

A disturbance in the Southeast is moving south towards the Gulf of Mexico, and, in its most recent update, the National Hurricane Center says it is "expected" to form into a tropical depression by Thursday. 

While the future track of the system is still being determined, the NHC says the storm will potentially bring heavy rainfall to parts of the northern and eastern Gulf Coast this week, including parts of Texas.
