We’ll be watching the tropical disturbance in the Bay of Campeche. Thursday morning it was looking impressive on satellite and will likely become a depression or Tropical Storm Wilfred.

It could start to head toward the northern Gulf Coast by this weekend, but the cool front looks like it will keep it from getting all the way here. Models then turn it west as it encounters the front and area of high pressure. However, the front coupled with the moisture from the Gulf could help showers develop across the area this weekend. With that being said it’s all about timing with the front and system, so we need to follow it closely.

At this time, there appear to be weak to non-existent steering currents in that part of the Gulf, so we likely won’t see anything move right away, but a drift to the north looks likely over the next several days.

If this current system doesn’t do much in the near term we’ll need to watch it next week as the stalled front sits over the Gulf. Models are showing development possible on the tail end of the front. This about a week out, so we just need to watch it for now. Stay tuned.
