A nice day is on the way for your Thursday but still on the warm side with mid to upper 80s. There is still a lot of uncertainty over Invest 90L in the western Gulf since this is in the beginning stages of formation. It does look like a depression or storm will form from this area but it is just way to soon to tell how it will move over the next few days.

We are watching another tropical wave in the southwestern Gulf that has a high chance of additional development. This is very early in the process of this system but it is something to watch over the next few days.

Tropical Storm Sally continues to move inland slowly through southeastern Alabama and southwestern Georgia. Heavy rain will continue moving up through areas from Atlanta through Charlotte.

Over the next few days we will watch what is currently Invest 90L in the southwestern Gulf. This system does have a chance of developing into a depression over the next couple of days.

The forecast models do show a system moving northeast through the Gulf and close to the Louisiana coast by Saturday before turning back to the southwest through the weekend.

Needless to say there is a lot of uncertainty with this. A cold front over the weekend could help to lift the system north but then a high building in behind it could push it back to the southwest.

Overall this is not something to be concerned with but is something to watch through the rest of the week. As always stay with us on WGNO and WGNO.com for the latest.
