NHC monitors cluster of disorganized thunderstorms in northern Gulf of Mexico

Low pushing tropical moisture across the southeast US


The National Hurricane Center continues to watch a disturbance in the northern Gulf of Mexico that will bring Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia cloudy skies, daily rain chances and muggy conditions through the beginning of the week.

There is a small chance for development before the system crosses over Florida and moves in the Atlantic. The best chance of development for this disturbance will be off the coast of the Carolinas by midweek.

A low pressure system is centered inland over southern Georgia. The low is forecast to move northeastward, near the coast of the Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic during the next few days. No development is expected while the low remains over land, however some development will be possible if the system moves over water later this week. Regardless of development, the low is forecast to produce locally heavy rainfall that could cause flash flooding across portions of the southeast U.S. during the next couple of days.

Formation chance through 48 hours: low at 10 percent.

Formation chance through 5 days: medium at 40 percent.

This area of low pressure will lift north on Monday along the Gulf Coast, then move east across Central Georgia by Tuesday. With the added moisture in the atmosphere we’ll experience increased precipitation chances Tuesday through Thursday across SE GA and NE FL.
