We are tracking a broad area of low pressure located over southwestern Gulf of Mexico. This system is expected to move slowly northwest toward the coast of Mexico, and it could become a tropical cyclone before moving inland later today or tonight. Regardless of development, the disturbance will likely produce heavy rainfall over portions of southern and eastern Mexico during the next few days. Heavy rainfall is also likely to spread over southeastern Texas and Louisiana through Thursday.
