Georgia low may develop into a tropical depression late this week.


A trough of low pressure currently in Georgia may develop into our next named storm in the Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center is keeping a watchful eye on a disturbance in Georgia that may move south and west into the Gulf of Mexico and intensify into a Tropical Depression. If it becomes a Tropical Storm, it will be named Barry.

This is several days out and may not occur until late in the week, but if all the pieces come together, the storm is forecast to move southwest into the Gulf then west through the northern Gulf and make landfall in Texas or Louisiana.

This is not etched in stone, but the development does need to be monitored. Tracks and timing for our region are too far out to speculate or prognosticate at this time.
