Our region may be impacted by a tropical system this weekend into early next week.

Timing and Overview:
A tropical disturbance is forecast to develop in the northern Gulf of Mexico over the next few days, possibly strengthening into a tropical cyclone, and may move across our area by this weekend. Uncertainty in the forecast is quite high at this time, and changes to the forecast, some perhaps significant, are expected.

Four State Impacts:
Heavy rainfall will be possible, especially in close proximity and to the east of the track of the center of the tropical cyclone. Amounts and locations of the heaviest amounts are still very uncertain at this time. However, a rainfall graphic taking into account the latest official forecast track has been attached.
