Be Prepared: Tropical system could develop in the Gulf of Mexico

Tropical development expected in Gulf of Mexico - CBS46 News

A weather disturbance off the coast of Trinidad has been deemed a Tropical Storm Monday afternoon.

The effect on North Carolina will depend on how the storm interacts with a slow-moving cold front sweeping in from the west.

Gulf Coast meteorologist Rocco Calaci says the system is likely to develop into Tropical Storm Bret in the Gulf and weaken as it interacts with the shoreline.

The southern Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao are under a tropical storm watch.

Persons with marine interests in St Lucia are strongly advised to exercise extreme caution.

The National Weather Service issued an expanded flash flood watch for the area Tuesday, and forecasters say the flooding threat will continue through Thursday night. The maximum sustained winds were recorded at 40 miles per hour with higher gusts. If the disturbance does come together it would be named Tropical Storm Cindy.

One of those two systems, the one farther out in the Atlantic, triggered the first-ever "Potential Tropical Cyclone" alert from the hurricane center on Sunday.

The second system is now a Potential Tropical Cyclone that has formed over the Gulf of Mexico.

The system is moving to the northwest and should reach the coast by late Wednesday. "It looks like the system could strengthen into Tropical Storm Cindy today".

The 1933 Trinidad hurricane didn't form until June 24, and 1979's Tropical Storm Ana formed in the same region on June 20.

A tropical storm warning was issued for Trinidad, Tobago, Grenada and the coast of Venezuela earlier Monday.

The NHC warns of heavy rains and that tornadoes could occur on Tuesday from south-central Louisiana to the western Florida Panhandle.

This is a classic rainmaker tropical system, with a large area of rain surrounding a poorly organized low pressure center.
