Tropical Weather Outlook - June 11th 1:30 PM
Click HERE to view an update on the tropics.
There is a LOW (20%) chance of tropical cyclone development in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico over the next 5 days.
The National Hurricane Center expects a trough of low pressure to form early next week in the Bay of Campeche and the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Subsequent slow development of this system is possible as it drifts northwestward to northward.
There is high uncertainty on any specifics this far in advance of any possible tropical development, but continue to check the Tropical Weather Outlook issued by NHC every 6 hours at 1 AM, 7 AM, 1 PM and 7 PM CDT for updates.
This system could impact the northern Gulf Coast region late next week, and although there is high uncertainty on any specific impacts this far out, the greatest concern at this point is heavy rainfall.
Now is the time to review preparedness plans since we are only in the beginning of hurricane season.
