The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a surface trough of low pressure that is developing in the northern Gulf of Mexico from a decaying frontal boundary currently
located over the southeastern United States. Any development of this system is expected to be slow to occur while it drifts just offshore of the northern Gulf of Mexico coastline.
Regardless of development, heavy rains will be possible along portions of the northern Gulf coastline from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle. Locally there is a 30 percent chance of some rainfall over the next several days. Here is the local forecast:
Wednesday – A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 4pm. Sunny and hot, with a high near 101. Heat index values as high as 110. Southwest wind around 5 mph becoming east in the afternoon.
