High chance for some gulf troubles this week (INVEST 91L)

Models continue to agree that we’ll be seeing tropical development in the Gulf of Mexico. At this time, Invest 91L looks to stay below hurricane strength, however it’s very likely we’ll be dealing with either Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm. The next name on the list is “Gordon”.

Regardless of intensity, this will not be a wind threat. This will be a heavy rain/flooding threat. With grounds getting saturated a couple days in advance, it will not take long for waters to pond. Also, add in a persistent southeasterly flow, and we have coastal flooding to deal with.

Use today to make sure your hurricane plans are in order. Like always, prepare for the worst, but hope for the best.
