The storm system re-formed this morning into a tropical depression after breaking up in the Gulf of Mexico. The storm is expected to make landfall along the southeastern coast of Texas at some point between Friday and Saturday morning. 

Much of Louisiana is expected to see between 6 and 10 inches of rain, while the New Orleans area specifically is expected to see 4 to 6 inches, according to early estimates from the National Hurricane Center. Tropical storm-force winds are expected to impact the New Orleans area by Sunday.
