Two Atlantic tropical systems may develop into named storms

6-16 Tropical

Another tropical system could develop as the system moves westward toward the Caribbean.

Forecasters issued a tropical storm warning from the Pearl River on the Mississippi, Louisiana border to Intracoastal City, west of New Orleans.

The disturbance is expected to continue to develop as it moves northwest across the Yucatan Peninsula.

If the Yucatan system becomes a tropical cyclone, it would be named Cindy. It has maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour with higher gusts.

The storm is expected to move into one of the Southern coast states by midweek as a tropical storm.

The storm system - identified as Potential Tropical Cyclone Two - has maximum sustained winds of about 40 miles per hour with stronger gusts, the NHC said.

RAINFALL: The disturbance is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 4 to 8 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches over southeastern Louisiana, southern MS and Alabama, and the western Florida Panhandle through Wednesday evening.

Clusters of thunderstorms will rumble over the area Tuesday and Wednesday, the product of a tropical cyclone developing in the Gulf of Mexico.

A large tropical wave has rolled off the coast and is now moving through the central Atlantic Ocean.

Bret transitioned to a tropical storm late Monday afternoon. Most of the models keep the storm away from Florida, but as you can see in the spaghetti plot of the various models, we need to keep an eye on it.

Bonaire and Arubda have been placed under troical storm watches.

No tropical systems this weekend in Savannah, just hot temperatures and low rain chances.

It will also begin to get breezy starting Tuesday, and the approaching storm will also raise the risk of rip currents along the beaches, the weather service said. Monday it is expected to be in the southern to central part of the Gulf of Mexico. "Most of us have already been prepared for hurricane season".
