The National Hurricane Center in their update this morning has given an area of the Gulf of Mexico the slight potential for development of a tropical cyclone in the next 5 days.
According to the NHC, the odds are at only 20% in the next 48 hours and 20% in the next 5 days for any kind of formation. However, tropical systems can occasionally flare up along stalled fronts in the Gulf.
Right now there seems to be only a very marginal chance for favorable conditions that would support development of a system.
Based on modeling data, we see no indication that a system would likely develop.
We will keep an eye out and see if this cool front turns around as a warm front this weekend. If it does, the chances fir rain will increase along the Coastal Bend but we will just have to wait and see.
