Tropical Storm Elsa: Could Make Landfall by Early Next Week

Clint Thompson Weather

An already rainy summer for Southeast vegetable and specialty crop producers could get wetter next week.

According to the University of Georgia Extension Climate and Agriculture Blog, Tropical Storm Elsa is in the Atlantic Ocean and could head for the Gulf of Mexico this weekend.

While potential landfalls range from Texas to North Carolina, the Southeast appears to be in its crosshairs by early-to-midweek.

Pam Knox, University of Georgia Extension Agricultural Climatologist, said most weather models have it holding as a tropical storm or perhaps a Category 1 Hurricane.
