Re: New SW Gulf Disturbance


Sally likely caught a lot of folks off guard,

One might say that . I'm trying to remember a storm that's done that in my days of watching.

As for 90L, the question is if it's going to let itself get steered back out over the GOM with that small pressure system north of it. It's most definitely firing pretty aggressively in place I don't know if I see this more than a nasty rainstorm surprise. The IR 4km shows it forming more on the left side of the storm but much more and it's going to run out of space and be on land. There's not a terrific amount of spin either which makes me see it as a bunch of collections of thunderheads. For now.

Still, all eyes are open now. Like you said, it's possibly another freakish surprise. Sally got everyone spooked pretty well.
