As of midday Thursday, the tropical disturbance to our south still has a 30% chance of development in the next 48 hours as per the NHC.  As the core of tropical moisture drifts north over the next couple of days, the upper level winds that have been unfavorable for development are forecast to relax a bit.  This will make it more likely to be able to organize and the NHC may continue to increase the chances for development as we head closer to the weekend because of this.  Computer models are still all over the place as far as track scenarios to play out.  All of the Gulf Coast should continue to monitor this and be on alert for updates to the forecast.
