Ana|Bill|&TD4|Hot 90s|Heavy Rain Threatens later this week

90s will rule the next few days. Tropical Depression 4 formed overnight in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. As it continues to organize we will likely have Claudette later today.

In the meantime, we have hot conditions through Wednesday and then we have a LOT to watch.

A strong cold front will be marching towards the east coast and arrive Wednesday. The system will stall or move slowly eastward. Meanwhile it will have a lot of moisture from the Tropical Depression now in the Gulf Coast, possibly the leftovers of Tropical Storm Ana (although she is having a hard time holding together), and possibly of what happens with Bill. Bill is looking like he COULD become a major hurricane! He could get entrained into that front along the east coast and pose a threat from the Mid Atlantic up through New England!

This is an interesting week with a lot of interesting weather later in the week!


Ana: She may be downgraded to a Depression later today, or even just a tropical Wave. Will need to watch the Gulf at this point for a re-strengthening.It is possible then she could hit the western Gulf at this point. She will be tough to determine track and whether she is worth watching if she dissipates as she looks like she is doing!

Bill: Looks like the First Hurricane and likely a Major one (Category 3 or Higher!). Concern will be if he interacts with the strong front heading towards the east coast later this week! Could mean a hit on the east coast, or at least a serious rain threat!

TD 4 (Claudette): Could be just storm strength when is comes inland over the Florida Penninsula. She will be a slow mover and also may be absorbed into the strong front coming towards the east coast.
