TD 9 Stalls in southern Gulf

As of 7 AM, we still do not have our next named storm (Hermine), although T-Storms have become more concentrated over the southern Gulf.  NHC says TD 9 has moved little over night.  In fact, it may be relocating farther to the south of the previous center.  Bottomline, the NHC forecast track hasn’t happened with this system and I expect more surprises to come before it makes up its mind on where to go.   The delayed northward movement will allow a digging trof over the upper Great Lakes to reach down and protect us by creating a NW flow that will keep whatever forms well to our east.   We continue to have minimal impacts (higher tides-brisk north winds) over SE LA/MS .    The 7 AM NHC advisory has lowered the pressure in TD 9 so look for Trop. Storm Hermine to be named maybe as soon as 10 AM.    IF Hermine moves as projected,  it should clear skies over the Gulf beaches making for a great Labor Day weekend.  Stay tuned!
