Today (Monday) the Pine Belt has been getting a good drenching thanks to a non-tropical low centered just south of Louisiana, making it's way inland. While this low will bring "tropical like showers"to the Pine Belt, the NHC says there's a "near 0%" probability that this will become a tropical cyclone. However, we can count on off-and-on rain from this system now through Tuesday.
The other area of concern is near the Yucatan Peninsula. A tropical wave dubbed Invest 96 is being tracked by the NHC. There's a 30% chance this wave will become a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours. The current models predict Invest 96 will head towards the Texas coast, a track that would put the storm closer to the oil spill site then Alex was. However, it's still very early to put much stock into that prediction, so stay tuned.
