TROPICAL STORM GRACE
|Tropical Storm Grace in the Gulf of Mexico
A tropical wave moved off the coast of Africa on August 19, and made a trek to the west. The wave moved through unfavorable
conditions that hindered any development until it entered the Gulf of Mexico on August 29. The wave organized into Tropical
Depression Eleven early on August 30, about 290 miles ESE of Corpus Christi, Texas. A hurricane hunter flight concluded that
the depression became Tropical Storm Grace later that day. Shear persisted on Grace, not allowing it to become better organized.
Tropical Storm Grace remained a minimal storm on the border line of depression status as it continued on an erratic path
northward towards Texas. Grace moved inland near Galveston, Texas on August 31. Grace quickly dissipated over Arkansas on
September 1. Minimal damages were reported due to the rains from the storm. No deaths were reported.
