New System in Gulf of Mexico?

11/03Z - Good evening! All eyes are on the TX/Gulf of Mexico coast for what apears to be a couple of lows to develop; one over land, the second over water in a couple of days. All this season winds aloft have not been favorable at sustaining tropical systems and this system is no exception as whatever low does form is likely to drag a cold front and later in the forecast period become a frontal wave over the Mid-TN valley.

Interesting weather features beyond 48 hours to keep an eye on are - the upper ridge is forecasted to be in place over Florida and the Gulf of Mexico with a strong upper low over Eastern Canada extending southward to the Mid Atlantic and Tennessee Valley.

And...SSTs along the future course of Fred's low level center are 27C (81F) and 29C (84F), and an upper ridge is expected to build along this track in the days ahead so while it's demise is soon upon it; who knows!

Fred may or may not be dead!
