DEPRESSION BONNIE JUST OFF NORTH GULF COAST

Bonnie's rains are stripped to the northwest of circulation center.

The weak low pressure maintained rotation with Bonnie’s journey from the eastern Gulf towards the northern Gulf shore, but without reaching tropical storm strength. Several bands of showers are passing over the oil spill inside the orange (enhanced) region on the satellite image.

Typical of weak tropical systems, only one side of the circulation contains the rain squalls. For this reason we seldom expect the worst weather to occur at the center location given in the advisories. In the case of Bonnie you can see that the clouds are pulled away to the northwest of the cirtculation center. For this reason, it is important to be aware of local statements concerning every tropical system. Surrounding environmental conditions are often different for each one.
