A trough of low pressure located over central Georgia is forecast to move southward toward the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, where a broad area of low pressure is expected to form on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, NHC forecaster Stewart noted at 18:00 UTC, July 8.
Environmental and ocean conditions are forecast to be conducive for development and a tropical depression is likely to form by the end of the week while the low moves slowly westward over the northern Gulf of Mexico.
Regardless of development, this system has the potential to produce heavy rainfall along portions of the northern and eastern U.S. Gulf Coast later this week.
Interests along the Gulf Coast from the Upper Texas coast to the western Florida peninsula should monitor the progress of this system.
Formation chance through 48 hours: low (30%)
Formation chance through 5 days: high (80%)
