In the tropics, we are keeping a close watch on a low pressure system around the Bay of Campeche, off the coast of Mexico. This system is expected to move northward and into the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, where further development is possible later this week. Some weather data develops this system into a tropical disturbance by Father’s Day weekend, bringing widespread rain to the Gulf Coast states, and possibly into the Carolinas.

Tropical Depression #2 formed offshore of the Outer Banks on Monday, and is expected to move further away from land, and dissipate in the cooler waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
