No discernible organization. T-storms beginning to pop now further north and west of the Yucatan. Looks like the disorganized area is really beginning to enter the Gulf of Mexico. No longer really a NW Carib Flare-Up as the thread title says.!

Definitely deserves an invest number and a percentage raise at 2pm.

We have the guideline about the changing of title to reflect a new location.

If you start a thread about an area of disturbed weather, you MUST take on the responsibility of keeping the thread title current and representative with respect to location, intensity, etc.

TROPICAL UPDATE 10:30AM SATURDAY:

Prepare for a lot of mischief in the Gulf this week.

Name or no name, this tropical weather system will most likely bring the impacts of a tropical storm to the Texas coastline in a few days.

All week long we were tracking a poorly organized tropical wave that at one time a computer model predicted would turn into a category 3 hurricane. Instead, it fizzled yesterday over the western Gulf.

Now we have a new tropical wave flaring up (see my posts from yesterday), and this one is a legitimate tropical threat to our coastline.

As of this writing, the National Hurricane Center only gives it a 10% chance of forming into a tropical depression or a tropical storm. I think the chances are actually much higher than that, but it's almost a moot point because the impacts will essentially be the same: Several inches of rain into Texas, winds along the coast gusting above 50 mph, and minor coastal flooding from the wind-driven tide known as a surge.

I do not think the computer models have a good handle on this situation, so please stay weather aware during the weekend.

Here's what I expect to happen today:

1.) The current flare up of storms will wane some. If new storms start to fire up again late this afternoon or early this evening, that's a strong signal it will attempt to develop into something more.

2.) Development will be slow to occur, despite how ominous the flare of up clouds may seem right now. I'll be looking to see if a low-level circulation starts to develop in the Gulf. Until one forms, development, if any, will be slow to occur.

3.) Additional resources from the National Hurricane Center. I also anticipate the National Hurricane Center will probably designate this as "Invest 92-L" and start running computer model simulations later today or tonight.

I want to stress that there is high uncertainty right now. Many of you are probably wondering if this thing could turn into a hurricane. My answer right now is probably not, but I can't rule anything out on this one just yet like I could with the last one. I hope to post again this evening, but first I want to see how the system evolves thru the afternoon and look at all the new computer model data coming in now as I type.

This area looks nice on the outside but doesn’t have much under the hood yet. If it is able to close off a circulation it will be as it comes ashore in a couple of days. Long way to go still. Rain will be the main impact.

Should be enough to warrant at least 20 percent from the NHC

I’d say you are correct. It certainly has a small chance to form into a tropical cyclone, but their percentages don’t change the fact that it’s lacking reflection at the surface.

Synopsis looks a little different this time.

Maybe we don't get fooled again?

Up to 20%-20%

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 PM EDT Sat Jun 16 2018

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a surface trough
near the Yucatan Peninsula and an upper-level low over the western
Gulf of Mexico has increased in coverage since this morning. Recent
satellite-derived surface wind data indicate that a surface
circulation does not exist, but strong winds are occuring to the
north of the trough. Environmental conditions are not expected to
support significant development, however, heavy rains and gusty
winds are likely to spread across the central Gulf of Mexico today
and will reach portions of the Texas and southwestern Louisiana
coasts on Sunday. For more details on this system please see
products issued by your local weather office and High Seas Forecasts
issued by the National Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

&&

High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service can be
found under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and
on the Web at https://ocean.weather.gov/shtml/NFDHSFAT1.shtml.
