It will enter the Gulf of Mexico by Wednesday, and be in the northwest Gulf by Thursday. There is a low 20% chance for tropical development.

We can expect higher rain chances and elevated tides this week across our region.tropical wave located over Hispaniola, the southeastern Bahamas, and the adjacent waters of the southwestern Atlantic is moving west-northwestward at about 15 mph. This system is expected to move over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico by Tuesday, and then move across the central Gulf on Wednesday and reach the northwestern Gulf on Thursday. This disturbance is currently producing disorganized shower activity, but environmental conditions are expected to become a little more conducive for development once the system reaches the Gulf of Mexico.
