A chance of showers; watching a disturbance in the Gulf

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Another round of tropical down-pours move through Monday as we tap into deep moisture from the Gulf of Mexico.

Southeasterly winds will continue to pump in the moisture through the day. Many are concerned about an area of disturbed weather across the Central Gulf of Mexico.

Hurricane hunters spent the morning investigating this system and could not find a center of circulation. The mission determined the system is working around an elongated low that still has the potential to tighten and become more tropical in nature as it approaches the Texas Coast.

Regardless of development the system will move towards the southern Texas coast bringing heavy rain to most of the coastline and parts of the southwestern Louisiana. Although the system is not officially classified as a tropical storm, conditions with winds of 45 mph will effect Texas.

A surface high combined with an upper high building west will force the system in that direction and dry us out for the next couple of days.
