Today we head down to the Gulf coast. Tropical Depression Four has developed in the Bay of Campeche, will this find its way northward over the next few days or will it steer clear?
At 1053pm CDT, the temperature at Beaumont, TX was 79 degrees under fair skies. High pressure found over the Southeast US is keeping much of the region dry, however a weak boundary of sorts is found over the Central Gulf Coast and is slowly shifting west over the next 36 hours as the aforementioned high pressure builds down further into the Gulf. This boundary looks to focus some Gulf moisture over East Texas tomorrow afternoon, igniting some afternoon thunderstorms. They should subside fairly quickly after sunset, leading to quiet overnight hours and Tuesday morning as well. The threat for afternoon thunderstorms is there once again for Tuesday, but the focus will be slightly further off to the west. As for T.D. 4, which could be named Danielle by midday Monday, it’s expected to slowly drift westward over mainland Mexico, posing zero threat to the US Gulf Coast.
