1. The weather pattern is not conducive to widespread severe weather, but with that said, we have a couple of areas to watch. The first area is across southwestern Texas where storms may produce hail, damaging wind gusts and a few tornadoes. Tuesday, the front coming across the western Great Lakes will produce a few heavy storms with hail and gusty winds in the afternoon.
2. Tropics seem to want to get started. We should have a named storm in the Pacific the next 24 hours. The GFS seems to think the western Caribbean could fire up next week with a storm. Euro does not show that, but sometimes the GFS can pick these things up early in the process. If it does develop, the storm would head north affecting Cuba and the Bahamas.
The TD's are out there. T.D. 9 will strengthen and may produce strong winds.
The tropics are active and we have two systems impacting the U.S. and one potential one next week.
Tropical system remains disorganized, but once in the Gulf of Mexico it may start to develop.
Heavy storms along the front today. System in the tropics is having problems but should get its act together soon.
Track of tropical system critical for development, but South Florida could be threatened first.
A new tropical system may be a threat to southern Florida late in the weekend and early next week.
