An area of low pressure over the Bahamas is producing a disorganized cluster of showers and storms to its south over Cuba. That is a sign of a poorly organized system and conditions should remain unfavorable for development over the next couple of days.
However, should the disturbance survive as it tracks into the Gulf Of Mexico, it will have a better chance to become a tropical cyclone late in the weekend or early next week. From there, uncertainty in its track and strength continues. Possibilities range from a turn to the north which would impact the Southeastern United States, or a track farther west through the Gulf Of Mexico toward Texas.
That farther west track would mean no impact on the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry. A turn toward the north would mean rain if the storm stays weak, or severe weather if the storm strengthens. Impacts, if there will be any, are still about 5 days out and too early to call. Stay with Storm Team 3 as we continue to refine the forecast.
