WATCHING GULF THUNDERSTORMS

The clouds look impressive, but it’s not enough to be named a storm.

The clouds look impressive, but it’s not enough to be named a storm.

The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico can sometimes produce clouds that develop into tropical systems very rapidly, but the National Hurricane Center is only looking at these clouds as an area of showers and strong thunderstorms. The El Nino wind shear is carrying the system toward drier air over the southeast US that was delivered to us by Saturday’s cold front. The front over south Florida is very weak and will move northward up the peninsula as a warm front.
We’ll be monitoring developments in the Gulf as we head into the first of the work week.
