An area in the southern Gulf of Mexico has been deemed “Potential Tropical Cyclone Three” by the National Hurricane Center (NHC). This is the first season the NHC can issue advisories on systems that have yet to develop but pose a threat of bringing tropical-storm-force or hurricane-force winds to land areas within 48 hours.
This potential tropical cyclone is likely to be a soaker for parts of the Gulf Coast this week, and flooding is a significant concern. Gusty winds, rip currents, high surf and some coastal flooding will also likely impact the region.
A tropical storm warning has been issued from Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to the Mouth of the Pearl River; tropical storm conditions are expected within 36 hours. A tropical storm watch is in effect from west of Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to High Island, Texas, which means tropical storm conditions are possible within 48 hours.
