Your FOX 8 Tropical Forecast

We're watching the tropics this afternoon. In the Bay of Campeche, thunderstorm convection still does not look impressive.

Shearing winds appear to be the culprit for poor development of storms. Models continue to hint at a wave or possibly organized system forming.

What's interesting is the wave looks to travel west into mainland Mexico by the weekend. Then another wave may start to develop off the east coast of the Yucatan and strengthens moving toward Cuba or the Florida Straits by sometime next week.

There is currently no development and the computer models have had a difficult time with this feature.

The National Hurricane Center gives the region a 30 percent probability of development in the next two days, and a 30 percent probability in the next five days.

This is not a feature we need to be concerned with along the northern Gulf coast.

    Solar panels lighting up New Orleans East

    Solar energy is blanketing one neighborhood even after state tax credits disappeared. In New Orleans East at least 2,150 homes have solar energy and several homeowners are landing the panels at little or no initial cost. At Mary Queen of Vietnam, the church installed a large solar system including a hot water heater panel. “One single panel like that we don't have to use any other energy from the roof to make the water heater work and so it's a big saving to us,” Anthon...
