Invest 90L Lounge (W Gulf)



A very moist and convectively active trough of low pressure now in the western Gulf of Mexico is producing an area of showers and thunderstorms. Recent satellite and microwave imagery, plus surface reports from ships, oil rigs and buoys, all suggest that surface low pressure may be trying to form.

Conditions are somewhat favorable for significant development, and the system is already very close to land. Given trends the potential for a TD/TD-like or even a wet Tropical Storm is reasonable enough to start a Lounge considering the potential impacts regardless of further development.

At present, NHC has not placed odds on this system, but this could definitely change later today, and I would encourage anyone who might be concerned to check back here as well as with their local NWS offices and preferred media outlets.
