First hurricane of the season
No threats to the Gulf at this time
The tropics are more active, but there is not a threat to the Gulf of Mexico over the next five days, at this time. Tropical Storm Danielle was upgraded to Hurricane Danielle Friday morning. It should stay out at sea.
We are entering the peak of hurricane season, so we expect to be talking about more storms over the next few weeks.
There are several areas in the Atlantic we’re watching for tropical development. None of which seem to be a threat to the Gulf of Mexico.
The system that could become the next named tropical system is in the Northern Central Atlantic. It is called Invest 91-L at this time. Conditions are pretty favorable for development. Regardless of development, it is forecast to stay out at sea.
The next system has gone from a medium to low chance for development. It is Invest 94-L and moving off the coast of Africa now.
The next tropical wave that becomes named will be called Earl.
We’ll keep you updated on all of the tropical activity in the Atlantic Basin and especially if we see any concerns for the Gulf Coast.
