The Next 5 Days

A weak trough of low pressure located just offshore of the central coast of Texas is producing disorganized showers and a few thunderstorms over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico and adjacent coastal areas. Proximity to land and only marginally favorable upper-level winds are expected to inhibit development while the system drifts southwestward during the next day or so. For additional information on the rainfall associated with this system, please see products from your local National Weather Service office.

A tropical wave is expected to move offshore of the west coast of Africa tonight. Conditions are expected to be favorable for gradual development of this system later this week while it moves westward at 15 to 20 mph over the tropical Atlantic.
