An eastbound occluded front has formed across the southern United States extending from central Texas to the Atlantic, which sweeps across much of the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. This is fairly slow moving but as often occurs at this time of the season, may form a disturbance in its tail as it heads east and the chatterers have a weak tropical storm forming in the coastal waters of south Louisiana later this week. Regardless of development, flooding from heavy rainfall some strong winds in squalls may fan across the Gulf coast, especially towards the latter part of this week. Early days but worth watching.

Stand easy.
