7:00 AM | *Tropical depression 3 just offshore to generate windy conditions at local beaches*

Paul Dorian

Tropical depression number 3 has formed just offshore and it will create windy conditions today at area beaches, but its strongest winds will remain out over the western Atlantic on its eastern side. The combination of this tropical system and an eastern US trough of low pressure in the upper atmosphere will lead to more shower and thunderstorm activity across the Florida Peninsula over the next few days. The tropical system is likely to stay offshore and move to a position east of North Carolina over the next few days.

7:00 AM | *Major heat wave next few days from the middle of the country to the east coast*

Paul Dorian

Our rather typical summer-like weather pattern will continue through the upcoming weekend and well into next week. Each day will feature high temperatures not far from the 90 degree mark and there will be scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Florida Peninsula. Elsewhere, the tropical scene in the Atlantic Basin is still looking rather quiet with lots of dry (Saharan Desert) air over the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

7:00 AM | *Still looking quiet on the tropical scene*

Paul Dorian

A rather typical summer-like weather pattern will continue for the remainder of the week and right through the upcoming weekend. Each day will feature high temperatures not far from the 90 degree mark and there will be only scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Florida Peninsula. Elsewhere, the tropical scene in the Atlantic Basin is looking rather quiet with lots of dry (Saharan Desert) air over the Atlantic Ocean.

7:00 AM | *Hot, humid and a daily shot at showers and thunderstorms*

Paul Dorian

A rather typical summer-like weather pattern will continue for the remainder of the week and upcoming weekend. Each day will feature high temperatures not far from the 90 degree mark and there will be scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Florida Peninsula. There will be a daily sea breeze which will tend to result in the greatest chances for rain across interior sections and any storm can produce heavy rainfall. Elsewhere, the tropical scene in the Atlantic Basin is looking rather quiet with lots of dry (Saharan Desert) air over the Atlantic Ocean.

7:00 AM | *Stuck in a rut with daily highs near 90 degrees and the chance of showers and storms*

7:00 AM | *Lots of moisture in the eastern third of the nation*

Paul Dorian

A sea breeze will develop today and push inland limiting chances for showers and storms along the coast, but the interior sections of Florida will see an enhanced chance of rain. Barry’s remains continue to push northward in the Tennessee Valley region and its moisture field extends throughout much of the eastern third of the nation. Even here in central Florida, there will be a daily shots at showers and thunderstorms as a result of high moisture levels.

7:00 AM | *Weekend hurricane threat centered on Louisiana*

Paul Dorian

A tropical system over the Gulf of Mexico has intensified into tropical storm status (named Barry) and it could reach hurricane status by later tonight or early tomorrow. This system is slowly drifting towards the Louisiana coastline and could make landfall in the south-central part of the state by early Saturday as a cat 1 hurricane or a strong tropical storm. With the building ridge of high pressure to the northwest, this system will remain a slow mover and this will only exacerbate flooding potential. The Mississippi River is already running at high levels in that part of the country as a result of heavy snow melt and flooding rains this spring season.

11:20 AM | *Gulf hurricane threat continues with possible Louisiana landfall by the early weekend…strong-to-severe thunderstorm threat this afternoon and tonight in the Mid-Atlantic/NE US*

Paul Dorian

A broad area of low pressure is drifting westward this morning over the Gulf of Mexico and there is not yet a well-defined center of circulation.  As atmospheric conditions become more favorable and the system moves over warmer-than-normal water, intensification will become more likely and tropical storm status could be attained by later tonight or early tomorrow and perhaps (weak) hurricane status can be reached by later tomorrow night.  A turn to the northwest by the early part of the weekend could bring this tropical system into central Louisiana and it’ll likely remain a relatively slow-mover raising the chances for substantial amounts of rainfall across southern Louisiana and parts of Mississippi as well over the next few days.  Elsewhere, there is a threat this afternoon and tonight in the I-95 corridor for strong-to-severe thunderstorms – any one of these storms can bring heavy downpours to an already-soaked part of the country.

7:00 AM | *Weekend hurricane threat in the Gulf with a possible landfall in central Louisiana*

Paul Dorian

Low pressure that pushed over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico yesterday will get better organized later today and it is very likely to reach named (Barry) tropical storm status by later today or early tomorrow. There are reasons to believe that the combination of favorable atmospheric and oceanic conditions will allow for this more rapid strengthening over the next 24-36 hours and this could result in a category 1 or 2 hurricane by the time it closes in on the central Louisiana coastline. With a building ridge to the northwest, there is the good chance that this system will remain a slow mover and this will only enhance chances for some serious rainfall in the Gulf of Mexico region from northeastern Texas to Mississippi and with a focus on southern Louisiana.

7:00 AM | *Tropical system could directly impact Louisiana/Texas border region this weekend - perhaps even as a hurricane*

Paul Dorian

All eyes continue to focus on the Gulf of Mexico as a tropical system will intensify over the next couple of days into named (Barry) tropical storm status. This system is likely to drift to the west over the next couple of days and it could very well have a direct impact on the Texas/Louisiana border region this weekend – perhaps even as a hurricane category status 1 or 2. Whether or not hurricane status is actually reached, there will be very heavy rainfall over much of the Gulf coastal region; especially, across southern Louisiana…stay tuned.
