Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around September 22nd-October 1st.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, Post-Tropical Storm Humberto is located about 1100 miles Southwest of the Azores Islands and is moving Northwestward at 10 to 15mph. Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with this system has changed little over the past several hours, but environmental conditions are expected to become more favorable for regeneration into a tropical cyclone over the next day or so. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a high chance, 80%, of becoming a tropical cyclone again during the next 48 hours, and a high chance, 90%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days as it turns Northward and Northeastward over the open Atlantic. Also, in the Atlantic, Hurricane Ingrid is nearing the Mexican Coastline. Winds are at 75mph with a pressure of 989mbars. Movement is West-Northwest at 7mph. Ingrid is expected to make landfall in Mexico late this morning or by this afternoon. Primary threats from Ingrid will be life-threatening flash floods and mudslides. Rainfall amounts of 10-20 inches are possible with locally 25+ inches. Additional threats will be for gusty winds and rip currents. A Hurricane Warning is in effect from La Pesca, Mexico down to Cabo Rojo, Mexico, and a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from San Fernando, Mexico down to La Pesca, Mexico, and from Cabo Rojo, Mexico down to Tuxpan, Mexico. Also, in the Atlantic, a large area of disturbed weather is located over the Northwestern Caribbean Sea. This disturbance is expected to move generally Westward across the Yucatan Peninsula and into the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico over the next few days where a broad area of low pressure could form by the end of the week. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for some development of this low. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Eastern Pacific, all is quiet as Tropical Storm Manuel has dissipated.
Hope yall are having a great Monday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
