NHC: “Tropic disturbance in North central Gulf has low chance of development”
Invest 99L is still a broad, disorganized system in the Bahamas this afternoon. More thunderstorms have formed in the area today compared to yesterday. NHC gives this system a low (30%) chance of developing into a tropical cyclone by Sunday and a medium (60%) chance of developing early next week in the eastern Gulf of Mexico near Florida.
There is a tropical disturbance in the north central Gulf of Mexico that is moving west towards Texas. NHC gives this system a low (10%) chance of developing before it moves over Texas on Sunday. This system is producing higher tides and rain showers off our coast today.
Through the weekend, we are expecting as much as 1 to 3 inches of rain along and south of the I-10 corridor of southeast Texas and southwest and south central Louisiana. If heavy rain falls over areas that are still dealing with the flooding from two weekends ago, additional flooding will be possible. There is still river flood warnings for parts of the Vermilion and Mermentau Rivers, and water is still draining out of Cameron, Vermilion, Iberia, Acadia, Jeff Davis, Lafayette, and St. Martin Parishes. In addition, during periods of high tide, minor coastal flooding will be possible.
