Area of Low Pressure Could Bring Heavy Rain Wednesday – Friday

Figure 1. Latest 7-day QPF outlook from the Weather Prediction Center.

An area of low pressure is going to form over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday. From Wednesday through Friday, this low will track generally east along/just south of the Gulf Coast.

Widespread showers/thunderstorms will be likely along the northern Gulf Coast. Heavy rain will also be possible. The latest QPF outlook from the Weather Prediction Center currently keeps the higher totals (3 – 5″) offshore (see figure 1). However, if the low tracks along the coast or just inland, the area of heaviest rain would shift onshore.

If a track just inland were to occur, there could also be a threat for a few strong storms.
