While Colin steered clear of the U.S., there are other features of interest across the Atlantic Basin that could affect the nation. In fact, the potential exists for a new tropical system to form in the Gulf of Mexico and impact the Gulf Coast states this upcoming week.
The AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center reports that a frontal boundary stretched along the coast of the Southeast and across central Florida would be the culprit behind this development.
Already, an area of low pressure has formed along this front offshore of Georgia. This low is expected to move westward across the Florida peninsula tonight into Monday and emerge over the eastern Gulf Tuesday.
Once over the Gulf, this low will have an opportunity to develop into a tropical system through Wednesday. Computer models currently show this feature moving west-northwestward into an area between Louisiana and the upper Texas coast toward the latter half of the week.
People with interests along the Gulf Coast from Texas to Florida should regularly check back with AccuWeather.com for updates on this potential over the next few days.
If this system does develop tropically, it will compete with another area of low pressure out over the central Atlantic for the next name on the 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season list, which is Danielle.
For people living in and visiting Florida, the low will bring widespread, locally heavy thunderstorms to the central and southern peninsula through Monday. Flash flooding could result in some areas along with disruptions to travel.
