92L Nearing the Gulf

The NHC will initiate advisories on Potential Tropical Cyclone Two at 10 am CDT. (11am EDT) Watches Likely for Louisiana which is already receiving flooding rainfall this morning (New Orleans got 6-10 inches this

8:30 AM EDT 10 July 2019 Update

92L is now getting organized in the Gulf of Mexico as can be seen on satellite imagery. There still is a 90% chance for development over the next 48 hours. It could form as early as tonight (Recon scheduled for this afternoon would likely make that determination), but more likely sometime tomorrow.

It is very likely that Hurricane, Tropical Storm, and Storm Surges Watches/Warnings will be issued later today.

The models range from Louisiana to Northeast Texas, and vary in strength. Typically points at and to the right of the center of the storm see the worst of the weather and surge. In any case large amounts of flooding rainfall are expected, and this system still could strengthen into a hurricane. Upper level conditions around 92L are good for development, so it looks like things will start popping later today.

8:30 AM EDT 9 July 2019 Update
The 92L system, now over the Florida Panhandle and likely to move over water later today, still has an 80% chance for development over the next 5 days and 50% development over the next 48 hours.

Today will bring rain to some areas along the Florida coast, but any real organization (if any) is not likely until Thursday.

The National Hurricane Center may begin Potential Tropical Cyclone advisories as early as this evening depending on how the storm progresses. Regardless of how much the storm forms, there will be heavy rain along the northern and northeastern Gulf coasts.

There still remains potential for a strong tropical storm or hurricane to develop, so those in Louisiana in particular along with just east and west of there should continue to watch this system closely. Especially as Friday and Saturday arrive. It is also important to note there is still a chance this does not form at all.

9:30 AM EDT 8 July 2019 Update
The Georgia system is now being tracked as invest 92L. Model/forecast/speculation can be found in the Forecast Lounge.

5AM EDT 8 July 2019 Update
The frontal boundary disturbance currently over western Georgia now has an 80% chance to develop this week. Based on the current models its not likely to emerge into the Gulf until tomorrow night, but once there is enough of favorable environment for something tropical to form in the Gulf Thursday or Friday, and most likely drift westward during this time.

The system is most likely just a rain maker, but if it manages to stay in the gulf long enough it could form into a strong tropical storm or hurricane. Those in the Gulf, particularly from NE Texas and Louisiana should be watching this one closely for this coming weekend.

Those further east and west should also continue to monitor It's likely not to have any official tropical advisories issued until the system is almost or has formed. So watch the hurricane center's outlooks closely.

Original Update
An interesting combination of a frontal system and a mid-level disturbance,currently over extreme northwestern Georgia along with very warm Gulf waters makes for an interesting mid to late week when the system moves out over the Gulf and upper level conditions turn favorable for development.

There it may have favorable enough conditions to form, in fact most of the models suggest it. Therefore the NHC has increased development chances to 60% over the next 5 days. Depending on how far south and west the system drifts, the more inclined it can form. Therefore those along the northern Gulf coast, from Western Louisiana/NE Texas Coast all the way to the Florida Panhandle should watch this one closely over the next few days. And those further east and west. will want to follow.

This area is not currently tagged as an invest, and it is currently over land. However, the spin is evident on radar currently at the point of convergence. If this moves south over water it won't take much for it to start forming. One thing to watch in the short term is how far south vs east this system gets. Even if it does develop, it isn't likely to gain too much strength and primarily be a rain maker. However the heat content and proximity to land still requires attention in case it does linger over water longer than anticipated.
