MON – 07/08/19

CONDITIONS: FLAT * SUNNY * HOT
SURF REPORT:

Good Monday… The surf is flat and it is really hot again today. The surf will not pickup until mid-week depending on what is happening in the Gulf, and that is the big story this morning so keep an eye on the sky as we get into this week…

It is likely that Tropical Storm Barry will develop in the northern Gulf of Mexico by about Wednesday or Thursday. In addition, this system is expected to impact the Gulf Coast including possibly the upper Texas coast, coastal Louisiana, coastal Mississippi, coastal Alabama and possibly parts of the Florida Panhandle with squalls of heavy rain & gusty winds. It should be noted that the threat from this system has increased for southeast Texas, the upper Texas coast and the Louisiana coast since yesterday. Invest 92-L will push off of the central Florida Panhandle near Panama City into the Gulf of Mexico by this evening. Even though the environmental conditions are expected to be quite favorable for not only development, but also for strengthening, I do think it’ll take some time for it to develop (36 to even 48 hours) into a tropical depression and then a tropical storm. Given that, I think that we will definitely see Invest 92-L strengthen into a tropical depression by Wednesday and then into a tropical storm as we get into Thursday. Based on the forecast stronger ridge of high pressure over the central United States and a weaker trough of low pressure over the eastern United States, it seems quite possible that Invest 92-L/Barry will come ashore on Saturday somewhere between Morgan City, Louisiana and High Island, Texas. In addition, the environmental conditions will be favorable for strengthening for much of this week due to low wind shear conditions. This means that this system could be an upper end tropical storm with 65 to 70 mph winds by the time it comes ashore on Saturday.I urge everyone across southeastern Texas, southwestern, southern and southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle to closely monitor the progress of Invest 92-L.
