Wednesday Tropical Update: Eyes on Southern Caribbean
Some development possible by mid-month
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - It sure feels tropical out there (thanks to last month’s rain that spilled right over into June), but we’re free from any tropical worries for at least the next week here in the Brazos Valley.
The National Hurricane Center has had an area circled in the far Southern Caribbean for the past several days, and with the latest update this morning, have brought at least short term development chances for this area down to 10%. This essentially means that any organization over about the next week (into a tropical depression or stronger) is very unlikely, but the area is still highlighted for potential impacts in the longer term.
Closer to mid-month, this wave of moisture will likely migrate into the Gulf of Mexico, and from there, the uncertainty abounds. In our humble opinion, it is far too early to share any one model projection for late next week/weekend and into the next week. We will note any consistency in a western Gulf potential of enhanced moisture as we go throughout the next several days, but for now, this is far from a concern for the Brazos Valley or even the state of Texas.
A reminder that hurricane season is indeed upon us, and preparation is key! Updates throughout hurricane season can be found right here on KBTX.com and your PinPoint Weather App.
