Storm System in Gulf has Tropical Potential

Storm System in Gulf has Tropical Potential

In fact, this will bring rising chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms to our area by mid-week.

The NHC now has this system's chances of reaching tropical storm strength (over 39 MPH) at 30% through the next 2 days and a medium chance at 40% over the next 5 days.

Low pressure moving northward through the eastern Gulf of Mexico could acquire some subtropical or tropical characteristics during the next few days.

Be sure to stay with the WLOX First Alert Weather Team as we keep you updated on this system throughout the week ahead.


The National Hurricane Center is focusing on a cluster of showers off the Florida coast for possible tropical development this week.

Rain chances will remain between 70 to 80 percent through at least Thursday.

Regardless of getting a name or not, the main impact will be heavy rainfall at times this week, and for the most part, we could use the rain. The peak timing for the wet weather will continue to be during the afternoon and evening. I can't rule out a strong thunderstorm; however, no organized severe weather is expected. I will be sharing more specifics in my forecast at 9, 9:30 and 10 p.m. this evening.
