Storm clouds are starting to appear in the central gulf of Mexico. An upper level disturbance is moving on the fringes of an upper level ridge. This is a trend that will become more prevalent next week as a massive ridge starts to buckle and drift West. Current models suggest more rainfall likely through at least the middle of next week. Rainfall estimates of .50" - 1.0" each day beginning Sunday afternoon are certainly possible.

Other weather of note is the tropical wave we're tracking in the tropical Atlantic. Thunderstorm development is not as elevated as in previous days, suggesting that the wave is encountering a hostile environment. A pocket of shearing immediately to the Northwest will continue for the next 24hrs. A lot of this tropical moisture will eventually pull into the gulf by the end of the weekend and this will eventually lead to more rainfall next week.
