Based on analysis of the NHC 5 day graphical tropical weather outlook, and current satellite loop imagery, the broad trof of low pressure continues to meander in the northern GOMEX. The NHC has a low probability for cyclone development which is now at ( 10%) over the next 5 days.
NHC 5 DAY GTWO (LINKED)
Based on current visible satellite loop imagery, the area remains very disorganized.
WEATHERNERDS GOES 16 SATELLITE LOOP IMAGERY
The NHC has the “center” of lowest pressure just along the coast, on the border of AL/MS, at 30.0N. However, if you look close, there appears to be another area of circulation near 25.0N;92.0W. Based on analysis of the upper divergence map from CIMSS, this could occur, but we will have to see. Wind shear over that particular area, and northward, is only around 10 kts at the moment. You’ll also note two distinct areas of vorticity near the surface in the 925 mb vorticity map:
CIMSS UPPER DIVERGENCE AND 925 MB VORTICITY MAPS
Based on analysis this evening of the global models ECMWF, GFS, and CMC, NEITHER of the models indicate development, and the ECMWF EPS probability forecast has decreased greatly over the next 24-96 hours, albeit the ECMWF and GFS models still indicate fairly favorable RH values up to 500 mb, although over a diminished area, but only moderate Precipitable Water values. Both models still indicate an improving shear pattern indicating a radial shear pattern in about 48 hours. Since we have no organized, closed surface circulation, and models are still in disagreement where the area will head, I’m not going into where this may go, as by the time forecast steering comes to fruition, there may be nothing to steer, except an area of heavy rain. For right now though, this area will continue to drift or meander, as steering currents at the moment are almost non existent. I’ll be using the ECMWF graphics only this evening.
ECMWF EPS CYCLONE PROBABILITY FORECAST 24-72 HOURS, AND 48-96 HOURS
ECMWF PWAT, RH, AND WIND SHEAR FORECAST
Putting everything together, the only way I can see development taking place is, the center of lowest pressure has to remain over water, and away from land, further south than what is shown by the NHC, or a center reformation would have to occur where the CIMSS upper divergence maps shows the strongest divergence.
Regardless of development, heavy rains could occur over the Gulf coast from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle over the next few days. The following is the WPC (Weather Prediction Center) QPF forecast map for the next 7 days:
WPC QPF 168 HOURS
The following NWS Watch / Warning map will provide local NWS information for your area. Please us it for more information about the potential for heavy rain and flooding. Click the image, then once it refreshes, click on your area of interest to view any special weather statements, hazards or advisories for your area.

I will continue monitor the area and the remainder of the tropics for any significant changes.
Elsewhere, I do not anticipate Tropical Storm Formation during the next 5 days
