Pre-Christmas Gulf/SE Coastal Low

Models are about unanimously forecasting a pre-Christmas storm of a cool core/ trending symmetric-subtropical nature to develop in the Gulf by early to midweek, track ENE across Florida midweek, and into the southwestern Atlantic - Gulf Stream by the weekend.

This system as models currently forecast appears to be worthy of an upcoming Invest tag, and possibly a name. Given that the impacts would be felt over land (and Florida, specifically), and at a time of year when it may surprise many to learn of a strong coastal/subtropical storm approaching, we will open a lounge a bit quicker than usual on this anticipated system.

As of 12/19/21 06z, this potential cyclone has not yet started to develop. Additional information will be coming soon.
