MONROE / EL DORADO -- Tropical storm Dolly formed in the Gulf of Mexico around early Tuesday morning. With max winds of 50 mph on Tuesday morning, the storm poses NO threat to the northern Gulf Coast, including Louisiana.

Dolly will continue westward, making a Mexico landfall by Wednesday. While it appears that Dolly could intensify before making landfall on the east Mexico coast, it will likely not reach hurricane strength. The storm will bring heavy rains to portions of east Mexico which come along with the threat of flooding and landslides.

Tropical waves keep coming out of Africa. Sure, development is possible with those also. But, this season has taught us not to really get too worried with those until they show significant signs of organization. We will have to wait and see.

There are no tropical threats to the northern Gulf Coast over the next 5 days.
