Tropical Storm Warnings Central Gulf Coast As Cyclone Organizes

 

Satellite pictures overnight and this morning continue to show increased organization with the tropical system in the Central Gulf of Mexico. If you look closely at the loop there is a center of circulation and there appears to be an expanding core of thunderstorms on the northeast side near that center. Strong shearing was occuring over the system but this is relaxing somewhat today. That should allow this system to strengthen to a tropical storm later today. Tropical Storm Warnings are posted for much of the Central Gulf Coast from

With respect to the outlook going forward weather models are clustered fairly tightly around a track toward Louisiana or Eastern Texas near the Louisiana border. Afterwards the storm moves inland and the remnanats are forecast to move north and northeastward.

Last night’s global models pretty much show the same idea. This would mean that we run the risk of seeing some rain from this over the weekend. The GFS model last night illustrated this while the European keeps the bulk of the rain to our south.

The strength of the ridge and the depth of the next trough will hold the key to how far north this system gets and whether we see rain from it this weekend. If we do see rain in might be on the order of a couple of inches so I don’t think it would anything to extreme. The weather system will be moving along at a decent clip so it will be 8 to 12 hours in and out and done.
