The development of Tropical Storm Edouard can be traced back from a surface trough of low pressure that persisted across the Northeast Gulf of Mexico just south of the Florida Panhandle beginning on August 2nd. Overnight into the morning of August 3rd, the eastern portion of the trough closed off into a weak low pressure system. The low increased in organization by the afternoon, and was named Edouard by late afternoon when Aircraft Reconnaissance found winds over tropical storm force.

Edouard initially moved slowly westward around 5 mph on August 3rd and 4th, but sped up to over 10 mph the 12 hours before landfall near Sea Rim State Park, TX around 7 AM CDT August 5th as a 65 mph tropical storm. Click here to see the track of Edouard.
