Tropical system could form in the Gulf this week

Listen to the content of this post:

An area of low pressure over Middle GA right now is poised to move south over warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico. While there are still many questions about exactly will happen, it is looking likely that we could see Barry (the second tropical system of the year) form by late this week.

There is still a lot that will have to be ironed out about this potential system, but right now models are bringing it through the Gulf of Mexico and making landfall late this week. Regardless we are anticipating heavy rain in the Gulf states.

Our weather in Middle Georgia likely, will not change. We will be staying in a summer pattern with highs in the 90’s and afternoon rain chances for at least the next week. We are also going to be keeping the humidity high through the weekend.
