In the tropics, the NHC has highlighted an area of low pressure near the Carolinas. It has a low chance for tropical development, and it is not a threat to South Mississippi. There is also another area of low pressure near the Florida Panhandle that we’ll watch over the next day or two. Thankfully, there will likely be too much wind shear and dry air for it to develop further. Another tropical wave in the Caribbean could move into the Gulf by the middle of the week. However, models don’t show much development with that system.
