The following is part of the National Hurricane Center’s 2PM EDT advisory regarding a low pressure located only a couple hundred miles south of Louisiana’s coast:

 

a broad area of low pressure located a couple hundred miles south of

the louisiana coast is producing a large area of cloudiness...

thunderstorms...and gusty winds over the eastern and central gulf

of mexico. 

 

upper-level winds are forecast to become more conducive

for development...and this system could become a tropical

depression during the next day or so. 

 

a noaa hurricane hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the area later this afternoon.

 

this system has a high chance...80 percent...of becoming a tropical

cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves slowly northwestward.

interests along the entire northern gulf of mexico coast should

monitor the progress of this disturbance.
