NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – There’s been a lot of talk surrounding an area of low pressure in the southern Gulf of Mexico in the Bay of Campeche.

Right now, the National Hurricane Center says there is 70% chance the low pressure area could develop into a tropical depression or storm.

However any thunderstorm activity will not impact the U.S. coast.

A strong wind shear will keep heavy rains and flash flooding associated with the disturbance over southeastern and eastern Mexico.

There will continue to be a chance of development before it makes landfall over the next couple of days.
