Hurricane watch issued for parts of Texas

The National Hurricane Center on Monday issued a hurricane watch for the Texas coast from south of Baffin Bay to the mouth of the Rio Grande.

And the Mexican government issued a hurricane watch for the coast of Mexico from the mouth of the Rio Grande to La Cruz, Mexico.

That means that hurricane conditions are possible within those areas. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated arrival of tropical-storm-force winds.

      Go to Google and type in Baffin Bay, TX. I'm pretty sure it will come up.

      If someone from Texas does not know where this place is (and wants to find out) it is important. Yes, we can find it on Googel, as we often must.

    thanks for the weather.com map link. Since this is a "This Just In" story, the content is scaled down. Check CNN.com proper in a bit for full coverage...and no, I don't work for this news outlet!
