From now on with plenty of very warm Gulf water under it and no shear over it, Alex will be able to steadily strengthen, reaching hurricane strength as early as Tuesday. It is heading in the general direction of the northeastern Mexican Coast by midweek. With as large of a system as Alex is, some impacts should be felt in parts of South Texas even if Alex's final landfall is somewhere in Mexico. In fact, much of the Gulf of Mexico will deal with squalls, thunderstorms and locally heavy rain.
