Heading back to northern Gulf waters, the remnant of TD #5 may return to tropical cyclone status.

When the remains of TD #5 moved inland over Louisiana and Mississippi last week, it escaped the upper level shear but maintained its rain-producing capability inland. Now moving southward from west Georgia, the low will be back over the steamy Gulf of Mexico, which gives it a 30% chance of rejuvenation. This takes its track back under shearing winds from the northeast as illustrated by the white clouds blowing to the southwest off the Gulf coast.

The forecast track takes it back near last week’s forecast landfall on the Lousiana coast. Our local weather will primarily be associated with warm, humid nights and partly cloudy skies and scattered mainly afternoon thundershowers. You may continue to check on the location of the scattered rains with the radar tab above, and by watching The Weather Authority on WJXT.
