Tropical disturbance in Southern Gulf of Mexico has 60% chance of development

The National Hurricane Center on Sunday afternoon continued to monitor an area of disturbed weather in the southern Gulf of Mexico that could bring much-needed rain to parts of the Gulf Coast later this week.

South Mississippi could see some rain this week from a tropical disturbance now stewing in the Bay of Campeche. If the system can organize, it would likely move north along the Mexico and Texas coast, but it is unlikely it could become very strong.

The Atlantic hurricane season officially begins today.

Rules can be broken as Subtropical Storm Andrea showed after it's pre-season May debut and 91L may be an early bird set to develop in an unconventional location. What can Alabama expect? The disturbance is expected to continue on a northwest path towards eastern Mexico. Beyond that, there is a chance some of the tropical moisture could reach Texas, bringing rain by Thursday to that region.

If the disturbance becomes sufficiently organized, it would be designated a tropical depression or Tropical Storm Barry by the National Hurricane Center, depending on the strength of the peak winds.

A storm has to have a closed, defined, center of circulation and winds of at least 39 miles per hour to be considered a tropical storm and get a name.
