CONDITIONS: Knee High, Clean, Weak Hot & Humid…
SURF REPORT:

Good Wednesday… The surf is knee high, clean, weak and marginally rideable if at all. The sun is out and it is HOT & HUMID!! Keep an eye on the Gulf, there is some trouble brewing out there. If it goes in to Louisiana then we could get some swell, but the trend is beginning to shift the landfall closer to us…

We continue to monitor an area of disturbed weather over the northern Gulf of Mexico, which has been classified as Potential Tropical Cyclone 2 (PTC 2) by the National Hurricane Center. Located approximately 170 miles east-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River, PTC 2 remains poorly organized at this time, though winds are near 30 mph. However, environmental conditions remain favorable for tropical development, and a tropical depression or storm is expected to form later today or tonight. This feature will move in a west to southwest motion through Thursday before turning toward the northwest and even north this weekend. While there is still some uncertainty in the ultimate track of this disturbance, it appears that areas from eastern Texas to Louisiana will be at the greatest threat for being affected by what should become Barry. Heavy, flooding rainfall will likely be the greatest threat, especially over southern Louisiana. If this system does strengthen into a tropical storm, damaging winds will also be a concern near the center of the storm. It is also not out of the question that this may strengthen into a hurricane prior to landfall should it track well offshore for a few days.
