Tropics Update: Broad area of low pressure forecast to develop by midweek

Tropics Watch

The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor a trough of low pressure located over central Georgia this afternoon. The broad area of low pressure is forecast to sink southward over the northern Gulf of Mexico by midweek.

Once over open water the low will have all the ingredients it needs to develop into a tropical depression by the end of the week.

Regardless of development, this storm has the potential to bring heavy rainfall along portions of the northern and eastern Gulf Coast.

Locations from the upper Texas coast all the way to the Florida panhandle need to monitor this storm closely.

Chance for development over the next 48 hours: 30%

Chance for development over the next 5 days: 80%
