Tropical system developing in the gulf, New Orleans impact not expected

Weather forecast: Showers, storms to increase this afternoon

Weather forecast: Showers, storms to increase this afternoon

Regardless of subtropical or tropical cyclone formation, this system will enhance rainfall across portions of Florida and the northeastern Gulf Coast during the next few days.

A large area of cloudiness moving across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico has a 40 percent chance of becoming a tropical storm, according to the National Weather Service.

Current forecast models show south Louisiana remaining on the western, dry side of the system, but any changes in the low's track might bring higher chances of rain to the Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas. This storm system will cross the gulf over the next couple of days and move in our direction.

We will continue to keep you updated on-air and online on this developing system.

While severe thunderstorms aren't expected, he said, there is potential for flooding in urban areas. So I'm not expecting an all day steady rain, but I would be prepared for possible rainy periods, including a few heavy downpours.

Highs will stay in the 80s this week because of the cloud cover and occasionally wet weather. I will be sharing more specifics in my forecast at 9, 9:30 and 10 p.m. this evening.
