First, the good news: Chances for tropical formation have dropped from 40% last update to 30% this update. Now, let’s get to the graphics:
As expected, the precise location for landfall of this system is not known, but as of this update, the spag still brings it to the panhandle. Speaking of spag, here we go:
Some models have shifted west, and some east. I think we’ll have a much better picture of where it’s going on Monday morning as it emerges into the Gulf.
Finally, here’s from the NHC:
An area of low pressure over the eastern Yucatan Peninsula and an upper-level low pressure system over the western Gulf of Mexico are producing a large area of disorganized cloudiness and showers extending from the northwestern Caribbean Sea northward over the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Upper-level winds are expected to be only marginally conducive for development as this system moves northward toward the northern Gulf Coast during the next day or two. Regardless of tropical cyclone formation, this disturbance is likely to produce locally heavy rainfall over portions of the northern Gulf Coast and southeastern United States during the next several days. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system later today, if necessary.
