Activity in the Bay of Campeche, Likely Not Affecting Us

Posted: Updated:

There are two areas the National Hurricane Center is commenting on:

First, an area of disorganized thunderstorms on the northern gulf coast has been bringing rain activity to the area over recent days. This is associated with an inverted trough from an area of low pressure near the Bay of Campeche. While there is zero chance that this will turn into a tropical cyclone, it will still bring a lot of rain to the area of S and SE Louisiana tomorrow. More on how this will affect us can be found at our weather blog located here.

Secondly, there is an area of disorganized storms in the Bay of Campeche. While favorable conditions are in its future, it will likely stay on a westward path, thanks to an area of high pressure steering it away from the gulf coast into Mexico. More on this area of high pressure can be found here. The National Hurricane Center has given this system a 50% of development within the next two days.

Elsewhere, no development is expected over the next two days.
