CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no tropical cyclones
Northern Gulf of Mexico:
A surface trough extending from the Florida Panhandle west-southwestward along the northern Gulf coast continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the northern Gulf of
Mexico and adjacent land areas.
The surface trough is forecast to drift northward during the next few days and significant development is unlikely due to the system’s proximity to land.
Regardless of development, heavy rains will pose a risk of flash flooding along portions of the northern Gulf coast from Louisiana to the Florida
Panhandle over the next several days.
