Wednesday morning, National Hurricane Center meteorologists estimated a 60% chance for formation in the next five days, according to a center bulletin.

Located in the southwest Atlantic Ocean, the disturbance was expected to continue west into the Gulf of Mexico.

Meanwhile in Victoria, there was a 50% chance for rain and storms Wednesday with partly sunny skies and a high of 95 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
