Dominic Brown's evening forecast

Eyes On The Gulf As Tropical Development Likely

A stalled front over us now and another front on the way will help be the focus for daily rounds of showers and thunderstorms over the next several days. Moisture from the soon to be Tropical system in the Gulf will help fuel the shower/storm chance for us as well. Again, we’ll keep this in the mix through the weekend.

Invest 92-L…Low pressure in the Gulf will likely become a Tropical storm, this storm would be named Barry. The system will move west in the Gulf over the next few days. It could become a Hurricane if it stays out over water for any length of time. National Hurricane Center has the system making landfall Saturday in Louisiana just west of New Orleans .

Forecast updates will be important to follow moving forward into the week.
