Tropical Update – Tropical Storm Ingrid Forms In The Gulf Of Mexico

Trop Storm Ingrid
National Weather Service

For the past several days the National Hurricane Center has had its hands full. In this a busy but uniquely quiet hurricane season there has been a lot of weather to watch. While we have only had one official hurricane so far this season, forecasters are currently tracking two depressions and Hurricane Humberto.

As of 10am this Friday morning the National Hurricane center upgraded Tropical Depression 10 to Tropical Storm Ingrid. The basic movement of the storm to the west very slowly. This motion is expected to continue as the storm does gain strength.  The current forecast track shows the depression will become a Tropical Storm by later today. That storm will be named Ingrid if the forecast holds true. It is expected to bring more flooding rains to the eastern coast of Mexico.

What will the effects of this system be on South Louisiana? The best guess is that the storm’s moisture will interact with mountains in Mexico and then begin to stream northward into Acadiana. This will likely mean a slightly better than average chance of rain and thunderstorms for next week.
