Storm could bring heavy rain, flooding

Storm could bring heavy rain, flooding”

On its new afternoon update, the National Hurricane Center shows an 80% chance of a tropical depression forming over the northern Gulf of Mexico by Wednesday or Thursday.

Florida's Division of Emergency Management is bracing for the potential growth of a storm system expected to move south into the Gulf of Mexico later this week, with particular attention given to Panhandle counties impacted by Hurricane Michael a year ago.

Tropical development is possible during the next several days in the Gulf of Mexico.

Most likely, this system will be well inland in six to seven days and weather improves along the coast. A more southerly system could produce a strong storm, while a more northern system closer to the coastline would likely be somewhat weaker.

Florida residents along the west coast are asked to be prepared and stay vigilant in tracking the weather for the remainder of the week.

Right now there is a broad area of low pressure over Georgia which will slowly drop to the the south towards the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. There is also a low chance for a few showers and t-storms.

"It's not going to be a Harvey-type situation at 60 inches, but there's potential for local heavy rain and flooding", he said. None of the forecast models are calling for more than a tropical storm at landfall.

As this storm pushes onshore Acadiana will be on the sloppy side meaning you can expect rounds of heavy, tropical rains.

If the system becomes a tropical storm, the next name on the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane names list is Tropical Storm Barry. But for now, it's too early for specifics in the forecast - which currently encompasses a wide swath. The tropical influence for the Tennessee Valley is to be determined, but we will be watching closely.
