A non-tropical low pressure system, being referred to as Invest 90L located about 625 miles east- northeast of Bermuda is forecast to strengthen into a storm-force low pressure system tonight.
Here’s what the computer models are showing
On Friday, the low is expected to turn west-southwestward over warmer waters and will likely become a subtropical cyclone near and to the northeast of Bermuda.
After that time, the low is forecast to move northward and northeastward into a more hostile environment by Saturday night or Sunday.

Gulf of Mexico:
A disorganized area of cloudiness and thunderstorms over the western Gulf of Mexico is associated with a surface trough of low pressure.
Conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for some development over the next day or so before the disturbance moves inland over the northwestern Gulf coast late Friday or Friday night.
Regardless of development, the system could produce heavy rainfall over portions of southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana on Friday and through the weekend.
