From Parish President M. Larry Richard - Low Potential for Tropical Cyclone Development over the NW Gulf of Mexico through the Weekend -  8/12/2022

For more information contact: Prescott Marshall

Here is the latest tropical weather outlook...

A surface trough of low pressure is developing over the north-central Gulf of Mexico just offshore of southeastern Louisiana.

This system has a low chance - 10 percent - of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next 5 days.

Any development will be slow to occur as it drifts west-southwestward over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico.

Regardless of development, locally heavy rains are possible, especially across coastal portions of the southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas through the weekend.

For more information about the potential for heavy rainfall, please see products issued by your local National Weather Service office and the Weather Prediction Center.

Next Update: Saturday Morning August 13, or sooner if there are any significant changes.
