NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Hurricane Hunters will investigate an area of low pressure in the western Gulf Monday morning.
At the moment, the area seems unorganized and thunderstorm activity is displaced from any low level circulation. In other words, it isn't very organized.
Models consistently track the system into the southern Texas coast by Tuesday morning. In fact, this system will likely draw any available moisture toward itself and keep us relatively dry most of the week.
The National Hurricane Center gives an 80 percent chance of development in the next 48 hours to a low pressure system bringing heavy rain and gale force wind to the Yucatan Peninsula and southern Gulf of Mexico.
The disturbance moved across the peninsula from Belize and the general area where we would look for a center will be moving out over the southern Gulf through this evening into early Monday morning.
A chance for showers and storms today, but we will see a drying trend by tomorrow and through the weekend.
