NOAA: Invest 95L 2018 Projected Path, Spaghetti Models

A tropical storm may form off the Texas Gulf Coast by Friday, bringing heavy rains to areas already drenched in the past few weeks, USA government and private forecasters said on Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center's latest update now gives the tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico a 50-percent chance of developing into at least a tropical depression, down from its peak of 70 percent.

The National Hurricane Center says the storm system nearing the Gulf could become a tropical depression later this week and affect parts of Texas, Louisiana and northeastern Mexico.

The disturbance is forecast to move slowly northwestward across the northwestern Caribbean Sea and the Yucatan Peninsula over the next couple of days with only slow development expected during that time. "Aside from most likely minor impacts from wind and beach erosion, flooding may be a significant threat due to the slow-moving nature of the storm, although impacts will be substantially fewer than records set during Harvey".

Forecasters were monitoring five tropical systems in the Atlantic Basin, with the strongest, Category 4 Hurricane Florence, threatening the Carolinas.

Had Invest 95L reached tropical storm force before the storm in the Atlantic did on Wednesday, it would have taken the name Joyce.

September is historically the peak of hurricane season, which runs June 1 through November 30.
