Tropical system could form near Florida in Gulf of Mexico this week forecasters say

A Tropical Disturbance over Georgia is expected to develop into a circulation over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico by Wednesday.

A low pressure system located over eastern Florida has a 50% chance of becoming a cyclone in the next 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday.

Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 200 AM EDT Mon Jul 8 2019For the North Atlantic.Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:1. Currently, the Euro model strengthens to a tropical system and brings it into southeast Louisiana. It is forecast to push southward into the Gulf of Mexico.

The Florida office of the National Weather Service said the main concern for west central and southwest parts of the state is heavy rainfall.

So it sounds like Westeros could be even more unsafe and chaotic and lawless than it is in GoT - like Wild West Westeros. The infamous White Walkers remain a threat, and other creatures, including Direwolves and mammoths, will be featured.

If this system becomes a tropical storm, it would be named Tropical Storm Barry. It is going to be a very hot afternoon as temperatures climb into the mid to upper 90s.

Beachgoers heading to the Gulf Coast this week could be greeted by the first tropical system of the Atlantic hurricane season. For now, we see this as only being a rain event for our area.

Headline number two is the area of low pressure that's now making its way toward the Gulf Coast. This low will continue to drift south through the night and enter the Gulf on Wednesday. If the storm manages to organize and make landfall near Houston as a tropical storm, we would have all the things associated with it including heavy rain, winds and high tides.

Rain chances are expected to decrease by Friday with a more typical summer pattern with rain chances averaging around 60 percent for Friday and Saturday and dropping to 40 percent by Sunday.
