The National Weather service is keeping a close eye on this system that continues to grow in the southern Gulf of Mexico. Brad Bryant with the NWS Jackson says while there’s a good chance of a depression forming, they aren’t expecting anything major.
“We’re not looking at a major hurricane or tropical storm or anything like that” Bryant said.
That doesn’t mean you should forget about this storm, called Invest 93L.
“What we ARE looking at is the potential for some locally heavy rainfall” said Bryant. “Three to five inches is not outside the realm of possibility as the storm moves closer to our neck of the woods near the middle of this week.”
The National Hurricane Center in Miami has the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron “Hurricane Hunters” on standby today. The Air Force Reserve squadron is part of the 403rd Wing at Keesler AFB, Miss.
