SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Good news! The chance for tropical development in the Gulf has become even lower.

Invest 92-L, a west-moving tropical wave located in the southeast Gulf of Mexico, is now down to a low (10%) chance to develop into a named tropical system, according to the National Hurricane Center on Saturday morning. 

"92-L remains poorly organized and is unable to develop storms around its center due to strong wind shear tearing through it," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams. "Regardless of development, it does not seem like 92-L will pose a threat to the MS Gulf Coast because it should be steered westward by a blocking ridge of high pressure over the southeast U.S."

This weekend is the peak of hurricane season. Despite that, there were no named tropical systems in the entire Atlantic Basin as of Saturday morning.
