While there is still not a whole lot in the tropics right now, we do have one area of interest that I'm going to discuss for this blog post but first let's get to a much more imminent and a whole lot bigger threat to land.
Gulf Coast Flooding
Tropical moisture has pumped in incredible rainfall amounts in parts of the Eastern US Gulf Coast (from New Orleans area to the Florida Panhandle) and this has led to an ongoing major flash flooding threat in the Pensacola FL area as well a bit further west towards Mobile AL. Widespread water rescues are being conducted along with confirmed flooding homes--this is getting serious up there and we might see more heavy rainfall to come for the area. A Flash Flood Emergency has been declared and that's not a very common type of emergency you'd see or hear. If you live in NW Florida/S Alabama, or any area that might be seeing flooding, try to avoid travel at all costs and if you do travel--make sure you fully avoid low lying areas. Remember this, if you see flooding, turn around...don't drown.
Now I'm going to discuss Invest 93E, a gradually developing tropical disturbance in the Eastern Pacific. Models take it out to sea, so you don't have to worry about any flash flooding from this one or any other land risk for that matter, but conditions are favorable for further development and I will not rule out the strong possibility of TS Carlotta eventually forming from this one...maybe sooner than later. The NHC gives this a 30% chance of TC formation by Monday afternoon, which is decent so I'll monitor this for development.
