Still Potential for Tropical Development in the Southwest Gulf

The National Hurricane Center has acknowledged the potential for the remnants of Tropical Storm Beatriz to regenerate in the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico over the next couple of days; a potential that we have been monitoring for the past couple of days.

Presently, the remnants of Beatriz have a decent amount of vorticity, and a modest amount of thunderstorm activity. However, wind shear remains unfavorable, and will likely impede any significant organization.

In their 2pm EDT tropical weather outlook, the National Hurricane Center placed the chance of regeneration at 0% through the next 5 days.

Regardless, heavy periods of rainfall are likely from Louisiana to Florida now through mid-week, as the remnants of Beatriz get swept across the Gulf and Florida by a trough.
