Tropical Development Likely in Gulf by Monday

Longer range forecast data is in general agreement that Invest 91 will move north into an environment more favorable for strengthening over the central Gulf of Mexico by Tuesday or Wednesday. Upper-level winds are then expected to steer the potential tropical storm north or northeast toward the U.S. Gulf Coast by Thursday.

A credible forecast can not be made this far out on precisely where Invest 91 will track, nor is it scientifically possible to project how strong it may become. However, there is an increasing concern that tropical hazards from the developing storm may affect portions of Florida's Gulf Coast, anywhere from Pensacola to Tampa, by Wednesday or Thursday. Residents in these areas are urged to stay informed of future forecasts related to Invest 91.
