A tropical system in the Caribbean is likely to impact the Gulf Coast next week

A low pressure in the Caribbean will develop into a tropical depression over the coming days. This area of low pressure has a high chance (80%) to develop over the next 5 days. Right now, the low pressure is relatively broad and lacking organized thunderstorm activity, but that will change as the low pressure moves into a more favorable environment for development.

This developing system will track into the southern Gulf of Mexico late this weekend, possibly posing a threat to the northwestern Gulf Coast late-Monday into Tuesday. Get the full breakdown of this system and its potential impacts on the U.S.
