The wet weather we have had over the past couple of days will becoming to an end as a ridge of high pressure moves in across south Louisiana. Tropical moisture continues to move westward, and a good deal of disturbed weather will stay off the coast.
Still not great conditions for boating for the start of the week, but even offshore will calm down as the week goes on. Temperatures remain close to normal with highs for the most part staying in the low 90s.
Despite quiet condtions close to home there is a stirring in the tropics as Tropical Depression Six has formed. There will be no threat for Acadiana as the system is moving straight across the Bay of Campeche and along Mexico. Winds are currently at 35 mph, and the storm is moving westward at 12 mph. Landfall expected tomorrow in between Veracruz and Tampico.
There is a slim chance the sytem will be upgraded to Tropical Storm Fernand, but it will be a very weak, short lived Tropical Storm. Tropical storm warnings are in effect, however, along the Mexican coast between Veracruz and Tampico.
