2020 Atlantic hurricane season update
The WRAL Severe Weather team is tracking the tropics daily throughout hurricane season with the latest on storm tracks, expected impacts and safety at the coast.
Hello, everyone. Meteorologist Zach Matlock here in the W. Oreo Severe Weather Center with a tropical update. We're looking at tropical depression. Increased a ball is it's moving slowly over Mexico, and it has been over the last day or so, and it will continue moving slowly until at least this time Saturday morning. So we see it moving north Northeast. Now it's seven MPH, pressures now at 1000 millibars. So the system has been weakening substantially. Thinks to land interaction, and it will stay in the weaker side until it moves north of the Yucatan Peninsula. And we see that happening early tomorrow morning. It looks to impact the United States and its northern Gulf Coast, Louisiana, by late Sunday night early Monday morning, and then it will drop a decent amount of rain across Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri and even through portions of the Midwest through the middle of the week next week. Looking like Tuesday, Wednesday, even until Thursday, now future cast really pinpointing where the system is going, We see it slowly moving off the Yucatan Peninsula and then gaining some strength across the central Gulf of Mexico before impacting Louisiana again late Sunday night early Monday morning, and we see a lot of that rain potentially across the Louisiana, Mississippi and even Alabama through Monday. So we'll have the latest on this system today on W. R A. L and will break down what's going on with a tropical depression and maybe Tropical storm crystal ball once again in another tropical update later on today.
