I spent a day with Texas A&M oceanographers in late May, and here was their assessment: Around early June, currents in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico tend shift so that they run northward toward the shore and eastward toward the Mississippi delta. This pattern will probably last for the rest of the summer. Oil is unlikly to hit Texas unless a hurricane reverses the prevailing currents.
