Frontal activity across northern Gulf
General overview Saturday 1st August 2015
A weak stationary front extending across the Gulf of Mexico and into northern Florida is producing showers and thunderstorms. A low pressure system has formed along the front, south of the Louisiana coast. The low is non-tropical at this time but the front is weakening and there is a chance the low could become a tropical disturbance or depression over the weekend or early next week. Any disturbance in the area would move north and bring widespread thunderstorm activity to the Gulf Coast region during the early to middle part of next week. Most guidance indicates only a weak low or trough will form.
Disturbance twenty one is now centred about five hundred miles north-east of the Amazon delta and is moving to the west-nor'west at 15 knots. The disturbance continues to become less organised and there is only a slight risk that it could develop into a depression.
