While an area of showers and storms near the Louisiana coast is too close to land for topical development, forecasters and the National Hurricane Center are watching for potential in the Atlantic.
"A non-tropical low pressure system associated with an upper-level trough is expected to form southwest of Bermuda in a couple of days. The system could gradually acquire tropical characteristics later this week while it moves northwestward to northward," read the Tuesday morning tropical weather outlook. "The disturbance is expected to interact with a front on Sunday and development is unlikely after that time."
Closer to home, locally heavy rainfall is possible as an area of low pressure moves through south Louisiana. Storms moving through the New Orleans area Tuesday morning left behind power outages and flooded streets.
