Watching the tropics, Gulf of Mexico for next storm!

A broad area of low pressure is forecast to move into the northeast Gulf of Mexico Tuesday. The National Hurricane Center gives this low an 80% chance of developing into a tropical depression or storm over the next 5 days.

Forecasters began tracking the possibility of a tropical formation late last week, saying it was only a 20 percent chance a system would develop.

It is not necessarily unusual to see tropical development from a system that moves over the southeastern United States first.

While named tropical systems usually catch our attention, the effects of this weather pattern change little whether this system forms or not. Here is a list of the names that tropical storms and hurricanes will be given this year.

A low pressure system located over eastern Florida has a 50% chance of becoming a cyclone in the next 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday. This is because a series of mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) will dive south from Ohio River Valley on their way to the Deep South before arriving in the Gulf.

"She's been sending it to every other department, so we are well aware of the potential that's there", said Robinson. If it becomes a tropical storm with winds of 40mph or greater, it would be named Barry.

The Georgia office of the weather service warned of a potential threat and urged residents to establish and review their hurricane plans, including preparing emergency supplies.

We are only one month in the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through November 30.
