A disturbance in Central America has a low 30 percent chance for tropical development when it gets in the Bay of Campeche late this weekend. Next week it will move northwest or north across the western Gulf of Mexico. Unfavorable upper level winds could limit significant developmentĀ during that time.

It is too early to provide details on any potential impacts, but regardless of tropical cyclone development, there could be an increase in moisture and rainfall along portions of the northern Gulf Coast next week.
We will keep you updated.
