Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 25th-September 7th.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, a weak trough of low pressure is producing disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms over the Northeastern portion of the Gulf of Mexico. Significant development of this system is not expected while it moves Westward at about 10mph across the Northern Gulf of Mexico during the next day or so. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Eastern Pacific, Tropical Depression Nine-E formed yesterday and is forecasted to intensify into a tropical storm by late this morning. Winds are at 35mph with a pressure of 1002mbars. Movement is Northwest at 7mph. Is expected to head up toward the Baja California Peninsula. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, an area of low pressure could form South of the Southern Coast of Mexico early next week, and environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days.
Hope yall are having a great Friday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
