A broad area of surface low pressure, designated 92-L, has moved inland over the Yucatan Peninsula. This will halt any chance for tropical cyclone development tonight. By Friday, 92-L enters the southern Gulf of Mexico where conditions will only be marginally favorable.
Forecast models continue to hint that 92-L will split into two pieces. One piece is expected to move W/NW while the second piece is expected to move N/NE into the central Gulf and eventually come ashore somewhere between south of New Orleans to the Florida Panhandle. Oceanic and atmospheric conditions would support only a weak system. This scenario keeps any effects from 92-L to the east of central Louisiana.
