Tropical Storm Norman was a short-lived tropical storm that struck Mexico and brought heavy rainfall to Texas. In some areas of Texas, Norman brought record rainfall. The fourteenth tropical storm of the 2012 Pacific hurricane season, formed near Cabo San Lucas as a disturbance near the Mexican coast. The disturbance was upgraded to a tropical storm near landfall. It later made landfall and quickly weakened to a tropical depression. The depression became a post-tropical low shortly after landfall. Norman brought minimal damage to Mexico, but it did bring torrential rainfall.

Meteorological historyEdit

Norman originated from a tropical wave that moved off of the west coast of Africa on September 12.[1]
