Tropical system expected in the Gulf of Mexico

Tropical Storm Arlene developed earlier this year in April, so this next tropical system would be the second one of the season, Hathaway said. A tropical cyclone could form early in the week over the southern or central Gulf of Mexico.

Hurricane hunters were originally scheduled to investigate Sunday, but as satellite did not show much change and the National Hurricane Center chose to cancel the flights.

A hurricane hunter aircraft may investigate the system later. With that in mind, the greatest threat is likely to be heavy rain. Even if the system takes a more westerly turn away from the Alabama Gulf Coast, the abundant moisture will mean rain chances are becoming more and more likely from Wednesday through Friday. Computer forecast models often do a poor job of handling highly sheared systems that are either weak tropical systems or have yet to fully develop.
