Tropical Storm Beta has formed in the Gulf of Mexico at 4 pm and based on satellite estimates, winds were 40 mph. However, after hurricane hunters investigated the storm, they found the center had formed closer to the main convection and the winds were 60 mph.

An upper trough over Texas is pulling it northeast, but should keep it from blowing up into much at this time. By the weekend it will slow down and start to head west thanks to a ridge building over the area. This could allow the storm strengthen as it slowly drifts west toward Texas.

By early next week, weak troughing over Texas could turn the storm back NE and toward the north-central Gulf coast. Obviously this is FAR too early in the forecast and development stages of the storm to put any faith in.

There is a tremendous amount of uncertainty in this forecast due to the slow movement by this weekend into next week. We'll keep an eye on it and make sure you're following along closely.

It will bring clouds, windy conditions and showers across South Louisiana through the weekend and beginning of next week.
