92L Tuesday AM Update: Chances Of Tropical Development Still At 90%

Invest 92L remained a broad area of low pressure over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico Wednesday morning, producing what the National Hurricane Center called "disorganized" showers and thunderstorms.

Environmental conditions remain favorable for the system to become a tropical depression by late Wednesday or Thursday as the system continues to drift lazily towards the west.

"This system could produce storm surge and tropical-storm- or hurricane-force winds across portions of the Louisiana, Mississippi, and Upper Texas coasts later this week, and interests there should closely monitor its progress," read the NHC's tropical weather outlook. "In addition, this disturbance has the potential to produce very heavy rainfall from the Upper Texas Coast to the Florida Panhandle."

Hurricane hunters are scheduled to check out the system this afternoon.
