Track of Area of Low Pressure

A northward-moving trough of low pressure extending from near the central Bahamas north-northeastward over the western atlantic for a couple hundred miles continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Upper-level winds are becoming less conducive for development. This system has a low chance (10 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Track of Low Pressure Trough

A trough of low pressure located over the central Gulf of Mexico is producing a large area of cloudiness and thunderstorms and gusty winds mainly on its east side.

Upper-level winds are currently unfavorable for development. However, conditions are forecast to become more conducive later today, and the system could become a tropical depression during the next day or so.

This system has a high chance (70 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves slowly northwestward. Interests along the entire northern Gulf of Mexico coast should monitor the progress of this disturbance.
