Tropical Wave over the Gulf of Mexico will bring tropical rains

The NHC is watching a tropical wave moving across the Gulf of Mexico

Yellow area potential development zone.

The Weather Authority is keeping a close eye on a tropical wave that’s slowly moving over the Gulf of Mexico. The NHC gives this disturbance a 50% chance for development over the next 2 and 5 days.

Models show the disturbance tracking towards the northern Gulf Coast today.

This will play out if the disturbance moves fast enough ahead of the next approaching cold front. Once ahead of the front the moisture will quickly track east increasing rain chances.

For Jacksonville this means increased tropical moisture and rounds of rainfall today through Friday.
