Two Disturbances Likely to Form in the Atlantic
Don't look now, but there are two separate disturbances in the Atlantic the National Hurricane Center is giving a good chance of formation.
The first one will pose no threat to Southwest Louisiana as an area of disturbed weather is starting to form just of the coast of South Carolina. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 70% chance to form into a tropical cyclone.
This system is forecast to move west-northwestward at 15 to 20mph and will reach the coast of South Carolina and Georgia by this evening. Tropical Storm warnings may be issued as soon as this afternoon for the region.
The one we need to keep our eyes on is the second disturbance out in the Atlantic. The National Hurricane Center says they expect some slow formation while this system is moving west-northwestward at 20mph and is expected to reach the Lesser Antilles by Wednesday night.
The National Hurricane Center was giving this system a 30% chance of formation but as of this morning, they have bumped that up and are giving it a 40% chance of formation over the next five days.
Just keep your eyes on this one until we see if it becomes a tropical storm or hurricane. Hopefully, it will just fizzle out and we won't have to worry about it at all.
For the time being, we will just be dealing with rain here in Southwest Louisiana all week, with rain chances sitting at 70% of Monday, 90% on Tuesday and 60% on Wednesday. There is also at least a 60-90% chance of rain for the rest of the week.
