7 PM Tropical Outlook for the Gulf of Mexico

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 PM EDT Tue Jul 9 2019

A broad low pressure area located over the Florida Panhandle and
the far northeastern Gulf of Mexico is producing widespread but
disorganized showers and thunderstorms.  Environmental conditions
are conducive for development, and a tropical depression is expected
to form late Wednesday or Thursday while the low moves slowly
westward across the northern Gulf of Mexico. 

Tropical Storm, Hurricane and Storm Surge Watches could be required for a portion of
the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday.  An Air Force Reserve Unit
reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance
tomorrow afternoon.

In addition, this disturbance has the potential
to produce heavy rainfall from the Upper Texas Coast to the Florida
Panhandle during the next several days, and interests in those areas
should continue to monitor the progress of this system.  For more
information, please see products issued by your local weather
forecast office and the NOAA Weather Prediction Center.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.
