We continue to monitor the developments in the tropics as a broad area of low pressure has developed over Belize. There is a 70 percent chance of this system to slowly develop into a tropical system by Saturday afternoon, and 90 percent chance of developing over the next 5 days. Regardless of eventual developments, an abundance of tropical moisture over the region will be capable of producing periods of torrential rainfall and possible flash flooding. There may be an increased risk of high wind gusts, a few tornadoes and higher than normal tides across the north-central Gulf. Stay tuned to the latest weather situation through this holiday weekend.
The potential for heavy rainfall is increasing for late this weekend into early next week due to a potential tropical system moving into the region by Sunday. All interests in the forecast area should monitor the forecast over the coming days for more information. See graphic for details.
Showers and thunderstorms will likely linger longer into the evening hours before dissipating closer to midnight, then reform before daybreak. Lows from the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Expect more showers and thunderstorms to be around the area. Highs will be in the upper 80s.
