The first tropical storm of the Atlantic season formed over the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday, the National Hurricane Center said. The tropical storm has been named Alberto.

Forecasters said the storm could bring heavy rains, coastal flooding and gusty winds to the Texas and northeastern Mexico coasts through Thursday, June 20th.

Alberto is likely to reach the Mexican coast late Wednesday or early Thursday. On Wednesday morning, the National Hurricane Center said the storm system was “lumbering” towards the region at about 8 miles per hour. The National Weather Service said early rains had begun in Texas and that rain could impact the I-35 highway later in the day. 

At 10 a.m. local time, the National Weather Service said that the system was officially a named tropical storm. 

A Tropical Storm Warning was issued for the Texas coast from the San Luis Pass south to the mouth of the Rio Grande and the northeastern coast of Mexico from the Rio Grande mouth to Puerto de Altamira.
