Watching Isaac’s Remnants approach Gulf of Mexico this week

Redevelopment not likely

Update: Isaac's remnants no longer being tracked by NHC

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Watching the remnants of Isaac nearing the Gulf of Mexico this week. The National Hurricane Center is no longer tracking Isaac’s remnants for the possibility of redevelopment.

The disturbance has been downgraded to a near-zero chance to become a depression or a storm over the next five days, according to a Tuesday update from the National Hurricane Center.

Still, looks like the remnants will pull some moisture into the Gulf this weekend, perhaps leading to rain impacts in Texas, not South Mississippi.

“A combination of dry air and wind shear in the Gulf may prove too much for Isaac’s remnants to try to spin back up into a system later this week," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams on Tuesday. “But, we’ll be watching it closely just in case.”

Isaac's remnants probably won't redevelop. Still could send rain impacts to Gulf Coast, near TX.

“There aren’t any indications that this tropical moisture will bring any significant direct impacts to the Gulf Coast region this weekend," Williams said. “But, things could be a little soggier for folks in Texas between Friday, Saturday, and Sunday."
