An area of low pressure located over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico is producing limited and disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity.

This system is forecast to merge with a developing frontal boundary over the western Gulf of Mexico early Wednesday, and tropical cyclone formation is not expected.

Regardless of tropical cyclone development, the system is forecast to produce gale-force winds over portions of the northern Gulf of Mexico by tomorrow, and potentially heavy rainfall along the Gulf Coast by the
latter portion of this week.
