System in the Gulf Heading to the Southern States

August 16, 2013; 9:36 AM ET


I have no changes in the overall ideas of the system in the Gulf of Mexico. This morning, the low-level center moved off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, so now we can track the system through the Gulf. With the trough dipping in, the system should turn to the north and move into the central Gulf Coast Sunday. While most of the thunderstorms will stay over the eastern side of the system, there is still the chance the system ends up into a tropical depression or even a tropical storm as it approaches the coast. Despite any category given to the system, impacts will remain the same, and that is heavy rain across the Southeast this weekend.
