Here are a few views via visible satellite and weather radar- of Hurricane Alex which is a Category 1 hurricane in the western Gulf of Mexico about 150 miles south-southeast of Brownsville Texas.
On the earlier radar images from Brownsville- an eye was visible- although that eye was not indicated on the earliest visible satellite images.
Alex could briefly become a Category 2 hurricane before landfall.
Alex's eye has become more diffused on later radar images..
Alex will continue to move west-northwest today and should make landfall just south of Brownsville by tonight.
We'll also be watching the future movements of the remnants of Alex- and whether it will affect the weather here in the Central States later this Fourth of July weekend or early next week.
