Re: Possible New Development in Gulf


The rain bands coming into Pinellas County tonight, are these from whatever was discussed a few days ago about a possible system in the SW Gulf?

Or will I wake up to a new tropical system out of the blue?

There is some residual trailing troffiness from Harvey, as well as a cold front, combined with an upper-level trof, that has helped fire convection over Florida tonight.

Tropical cyclone development in the southwestern Gulf from the surface trof out there, if any, will continue to be slow to occur in the near term, due to high wind shear and very dry air, and is not directly related to that rain over Pinellas Co.
