Storm brewing for Florida, Gulf
It doesn't show much sign of developing into a tropical storm, although that remains a possibility. But the storm brewing over the Atlantic just east of the Florida peninsula is expected to drift westward, bringing heavy rains to the north-central part of the state before it moves into the Gulf of Mexico. Doesn't look like this will benefit us anytime soon. But AccuWeather's Joe Bastardi is looking for it to strengthen in the Gulf and threaten La. and Tex. Here's Joe on video.
Here's the satellite image. And here's the discussion from the National Hurricane Center:
"A WEAK SURFACE LOW PRESSURE AREA AND A UPPER-LEVEL LOW NEAR THE
FLORIDA PENINSULA ARE PRODUCING A LARGE AREA OF DISTURBED
WEATHER OVER THE WESTERN ATLANTIC...NORTHERN BAHAMAS...AND THE
EAST COAST OF FLORIDA. THERE ARE NO SIGNS OF ORGANIZATION AT
THIS TIME. HOWEVER...SURFACE PRESSURES ARE SLOWLY FALLING AND
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR A SUBTROPICAL OR A
TROPICAL CYCLONE TO FORM OVER THE NEXT DAY OR TWO...AS THE
DISTURBANCE MOVES WESTWARD OVER FLORIDA AND INTO THE GULF OF
MEXICO. REGARDLESS OF DEVELOPMENT...THIS SYSTEM WILL LIKELY
BRING SHOWERS...SQUALLS...AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS OVER PORTION
OF FLORIDA DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO. MOSAIC DOPPLER RADAR FROM
THE SE US SHOWS SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS WITH EMBEDDED
TSTMS ROTATING CYCLONICALLY MAINLY OVER NORTH-CENTRAL FLORIDA.
SCATTERED SHOWERS ARE ALONG SOUTH FLORIDA EAST COAST."
