Low Off of the Louisiana Coast
      #89110 - Fri Aug 27 2010 02:15 PM

There appears to be a low spinning westward near the South Central Louisiana coastline. It looks like it formed out of all the convection in the Gulf of Mexico. Any thoughts on whether it may be something to keep an eye on?

appears to just be extended convection from interaction of the stalled front and the Gulf - - no real tropical indicators

Features From Louisiana to Panama [Re: visitor]
      #89126 - Sat Aug 28 2010 11:06 AM

As noted by NHC at 8AM, it is a non-tropical system located at the end of an old front. This Saturday morning the system was located just off the central Louisiana coast and it is expected to move generally north to northeast into inland Louisiana today.

An active tropical wave with a small low pressure center is located just north of Panama in the extreme southwestern Caribbean Sea near 9.7N 81.0W at 28/15Z. Convection currently displaced to the north. The low is drifting north and a track to the north northwest and eventually northwest is probable. At the moment its just an interesting feature to watch.
