Tropical System Possible

At a Glance:

July 9, 2019

A broad area of low pressure has emerged over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.

This is an area where July tropical storms have formed in the past.

A tropical depression or tropical storm is likely to form within the next couple of days.

The future track and intensity of this potential tropical system remain a bit uncertain.

Heavy rain leading to flash flooding is a threat along the northern Gulf Coast, dependent on the exact track.
