Low Pressure in the Gulf Could Bring Concerns to Southeast Coast
June 1 starts the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season and we are monitoring an area of low pressure over the Gulf of Mexico. While this system has a low chance of development, it still could have some impacts on the Central Gulf Coast.
The National Hurricane Center has placed a “10% formation chance through 48 hours” and a “20% formation chance through 7 days.” In addition, “environmental conditions appear only marginally favorable for additional development over the next several days as the system meanders over the eastern Gulf of Mexico.”
Possible Timing & Potential Impacts
Right now this system is projected to move across the Florida Peninsula this weekend and emerge into the southwestern Atlantic Ocean by early next week. This could usher in heavy rainfall and gusty winds for that area.
In addition, The Weather Channel said this could mean “more high surf and rip currents to parts of the Southeast coast.”
This is a developing weather system, and I will continue to monitor over the next few days and bring you any updates.
