Tropical Development in the Gulf this Week?

Tropical Development in the Gulf this Week?

"A tropical depression is expected to form by Thursday from a broad area of low pressure moving slowly westward over the northern Gulf of Mexico", the National Hurricane Center said.

Florida's Division of Emergency Management is bracing for the potential growth of a storm system expected to move south into the Gulf of Mexico later this week, with particular attention given to Panhandle counties impacted by Hurricane Michael previous year.

A system moving out of Georgia and into the Gulf of Mexico. Forecasters at the Weather Prediction Center have outlined much of west-central Florida in a region likely to receive more than four inches of rain through Friday.

As of 2 p.m. Monday, the NHC said there is an 80-percent chance of a tropical cyclone formation during the next five days.

The email does not clarify whether Labour would campaign for Remain or Leave should a general election be called. Labour lawmaker Hilary Benn, who heads Parliament's Brexit Committee, said "this is a very significant moment".

If the depression's winds reach 39 miles per hour, it would become Tropical Storm Barry.

As of Saturday morning most model guidance was leaning toward no development of anything tropical. "That's something you're going to have to keep checking your local forecast for; but certainly there is the potential for heavy rainfall".

An area of low pressure continues to show signs of further development. Regardless of whether or not the system develops into a named storm, heavy rain and flooding are a concern for parts of the Gulf Coast. As a result, I will increase clouds and rain chances late week and this weekend and drop highs to account for this likely scenario. If it goes on shore in western Louisiana, the storm could actually impact our weather in the opposite direction bringing loads of sunshine, dry conditions and high temperatures up near 100. We will watch the trends with this through the week and have updated information.
