CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no tropical cyclones
Northern Gulf of Mexico:
A surface trough of low pressure is expected to form in a couple of days over the northern Gulf of Mexico, partially related to a decaying frontal boundary currently located over the southeastern United States.
Some slow development of this system is possible if it remains offshore during the middle and latter part of the week while it moves little.
Regardless of development, heavy rains will be possible along portions of the northern Gulf coast from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle over the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
* Formation change through 5 days…low…30 percent
