Wednesday Evening Tropical Update: Little concern for system in the Caribbean
Some forecast signals that development could occur in the Western Gulf by mid-to-late 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 been monitoring an area of interest circled in the far Southwest Caribbean for the past several days. As of the Wednesday evening update, odds dropped to 0% for development over the next 5 days. While a broad area of low pressure has formed there, “significant development” is not anticipated through Monday.
Closer to mid-month, this wave of moisture will likely migrate into the Gulf of Mexico, and from there, the uncertainty abounds. What is absolutely known, 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. Additional details of the signals that can be seen currently are included in the video above.
