Tropical weather outlook July 9 2019

 In Event News
The National Hurricane Center’s tropical weather outlook expects a tropical depression to form late Wednesday or early Thursday, due to a broad area of low pressure moving slowly west over the northern Gulf of Mexico, with a 50% to 70% chance of forming in the next 48 hours.
  • Very heavy rains are forecast along the Gulf Coast region, with up to 10 to 15 inches of rain possible along the future path of the storm.
  • Details from the tropical weather outlook as of 2p, EDT July 9, 2019, are as follows:

1. A broad low pressure area has emerged over Apalachee Bay in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for tropical cyclone formation and development over the next several days, and a tropical depression is likely to form by late Wednesday or Thursday while the system moves westward across the northern Gulf of Mexico. An Air Force Reserve Unit reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the low on Wednesday, if necessary. This disturbance has the potential to produce heavy rainfall from the Upper Texas Coast to the Florida Panhandle during the next several days. In addition, this system could produce wind and storm surge impacts later this week or this weekend from Louisiana to the Upper Texas coast, and interests along the Gulf Coast should continue to monitor its progress.
