Tropics watch again

Depression likely to form over the weekend

Friday Evening Weather

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - Low pressure over the Caribbean is becoming more organized and there is now a high chance for a depression to form over the weekend. It will drift slowly into the Southeast Gulf of Mexico over the next few days. If it becomes a storm the name will be “Zeta”. Heavy rains are likely to continue over South Florida but it’s too soon to know impacts farther north. Although someone along the Gulf Coast is likely to see some heavy rain by the middle of next week.

A strong cold front is expected to sweep the Gulf of Mexico by late next week steering any system to our east. Until the cold front’s timing is known Southeast Louisiana and Mississippi will need to monitor the Gulf.
