NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - While we now have a new tropical depression on this first day of hurricane season it is still over 200 miles from the mouth of the river bringing a building breeze and a few coastal showers. The new 10pm update shows no change in strength. It is still expected to move south towards Cuba over the weekend.

Hurricane Hunter planes are flying into the depression as we will get more information in the coming hours. That’s when we’ll know more about this system. In the meantime, what we do know is that it won’t be moving inland. It’ll be moving south over the next couple of days into an unfavorable environment. So even if we do end up getting a named storm, it appears it will be short-lived.


New today, Colorado State University has released an update to their hurricane season projections. They have bumped up their forecast slightly, making the projections towards a normal season for the year. They’re citing the warmer than normal water in the Atlantic and the Carribean as to the reason why. The warm waters could work to counter-act the wind shear that an El Nino should bring to the area.
