According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), Disorganized showers and thunderstorms located over the western Caribbean Sea are associated with a surface trough.

This activity is forecast to move westward to northwestward over Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula during the next couple of days, with no development expected.

Environmental conditions could become slightly more conducive for some development if the system moves into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week.

This tropical disturbance will move toward the western Gulf Coast later this week, bringing a surge of moisture that will likely trigger an increase in showers and thunderstorms…although not necessarily lead to tropical development.

This advancing tropical moisture source will likely lead to an increase in showers and thunderstorms…especially across coastal portions of Louisiana and Texas.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent
