Tropical weather likely in Gulf

The potential tropical cyclone map looks similar to the traditional storm forecasts, but allow the hurricane center to issue advisories when a low pressure system may be building up steam. Saturday's rain chance is 30%, just some isolated showers or t-storms. Early this week, an tropical system will move through the Gulf of Mexico, but the final storm track is still unknown. Cayman's own national weather centre said scattered showers and fresh southeasterly winds and rough seas were expected across the Cayman area for the next 24 hours.

Exactly where the system fully organizes will determine its future track.

A tropical cyclone is expected to develop in the Gulf of Mexico at some point this week. A Tropical Storm Warning is issued in the Windward Islands of Trinidad, Tobago and Grenada on Sunday night.

It wasn't looking as robust as it has, with limited storms appearing on satellite on Sunday morning, and its chances of development were 50 percent over the next five days.

Japan, other nations face difficulties changing US Paris accord decision
He said the other G7 countries hoped to continue constructive dialogue with the USA but insisted on the Paris parameters. The G7 is supposed to be a like-minded grouping of the world's top industrial democracies.

The National Hurricane Center says there is a high chance the tropical wave now located over the western Caribbean Sea develops into a tropical cyclone early next week.

The main risk with this system, regardless of development, will be very heavy rain along portions of the Gulf Coast. The most likely scenario is for a weak and highly disorganized tropical storm to slowly develop by early next week.

The second area worth watching is a tropical wave over the open Atlantic, about 1300 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands. The potential system is not expected to affect the USA coast as a tropical cyclone.

The main reason there is so much confusion on where this system may go is due to an approaching front from the north. Either way, if it comes right over us or stays out in the Gulf, we're still expecting widespread rainfall to drape the Suncoast next week.
