GOM Tropical Wave
A TROPICAL WAVE IS OVER THE SW GULF OF MEXICO AND SRN MEXICO
ALONG 94W S OF 25N MOVING W NEAR 15 KT. WAVE REMAINS EMBEDDED
WITHIN AN AREA OF DEEP LAYERED MOISTURE AS DEPICTED ON THE
MIMIC-TPW ANIMATION. NIGHT CHANNEL SATELLITE IMAGES CONFIRM
POSITION OF THE WAVE WITH SLIGHT CYCLONIC TURNING OVER THE SW
GULF. SCATTERED MODERATE TO ISOLATED STRONG CONVECTION IS OVER
THE BAY OF CAMPECHE AND S MEXICO FROM 17N-20N BETWEEN 94W-97W.

Northern and Western Gulf Coasts look wet the next few days. VIS SAT look good as well. Pressures are not low, but something to watch throughout the day. Nice moisture surge as well...

Just an FYI. Floater 3 is now up on area in GOM on NHC/TPC site.
Pressures a very high and appears ULL is drifting W to WNW. Interesting that it would gain a floater status. Nothing on Navy site at this time as far as an Invest.

I think this is mostly due to the relaxed shear seen in the western portions of the GOM and the sudden development that we've seen over the past years in this general area, such as Hurricane Humberto of last year. There is a slight chance that the ULL may try to work down to the surface but at this time no signs show that it is. Just a precautionary move.

Maybe Bill Read has a hand in this. After last years Humberto experience, better to be prepared, then wait until the last minute.

We sure could use the rain!!!! But, with the sub-tropical ridge pushing into our area from the west/ northwest, the wave will be swept into Mexico leaving South Texas HOT AND DRY Sad

I sure hope I am wrong!
