Low Pressure Development Near The Gulf Coast

As of 2:30pm Friday afternoon an area of disturbed weather has intensified in coverage over the Northeast Gulf of Mexico. At this time the NHC has given the area a 0% of development. As it continues to track westward across the Gulf of Mexico it will bring increased winds/seas and heavy precipitation to the area. Severe weather also can’t be ruled out with this system as it continues westward over the next couple of days. Places that are going to be impacted with increased seas will be any east facing beaches as the winds will be mainly out of the East at 20-25mph increasing wave height and tide ranges. Also places that were hit hard last weekend with heavy rain stand the chance to see another round of flooding rains on top of already saturated grounds. This system should remain off shore however it will still be felt from Florida to Texas.

Make sure to keep it tuned to your local news and weather for the latest information regarding this area of low pressure in the gulf over the weekend.
