Tropics Outlook 8-31-2014

A developing tropical wave approaches the moves west through the Yucatan Peninsula.
MONROE / EL DORADO -- On Sunday, 99L moved west through the Yucatan Peninsula. It will continue west into the southern Gulf of Mexico. Most forecast models bring the system into the Mexico coast by midweek, perhaps intensifying to tropical storm strength. Still not looking like a threat to the northern Gulf Coast regardless of development.

Also worth mentioning, an upper disturbance near the Bahamas will trek westward over the course of next week. While it does not seem like we'll see any tropical development out of that feature, several models indicate that it could play a hand in enhancing atmospheric moisture & energy across the northern Gulf Coast during the second half of next work week. To be clear, I'm not expecting a tropical threat with this feature. But, it's always worth watching any kind of disturbances in the Gulf this time of year, just in case.
