Low In Gulf? No problem...

VIPIR hinted days ago that a area of low pressure would form south of the Louisiana coast.  This afternoon's visible satellite loop clearly shows a swirl of low level clouds ESE of Brownsville but there are no showers with it.  With such a strong trough coming down from the north, it's highly unlikely that this low will develop except as a more winter-like system.  It will turn rainy here late Sunday into Monday and the 1st of several fronts arrive later Tuesday bringing back the cooler and drier air for the rest of next week.  Computer models indicate the east coast trough will establish itself for the rest of this month making the Great Lakes & NE unusually chilly while we should see more October-like beautiful weather.   Unless something springs up along a front in the Gulf, Isaac could be our last tropical threat for this year.  Let's hope so.  Stay tuned!
