The low is forecast to develop tropical characteristics and there is a high chance that a depression forms by Thursday.

An area of low pressure could develop there, and there's a chance - a low chance - that it could evolve into a tropical system, as some computer models have suggested.

This is likely one of the reasons why the agency tasked with tracking and forecasting tropical system increased their five-day projection from 20% Saturday to 50-50 Sunday.

Trump on Monday said he would "no longer deal" with Darroch, claiming "he is not liked or well thought of within the U.S". The Foreign Office, which originally described the leak as "mischievous", launched a formal leak inquiry on Sunday.

Locally, the area of low pressure will continue to produce cloudy skies and bands of showers and potentially strong thunderstorms moving onshore from the Gulf of Mexico, according to the National Weather Service. While the environment in place in that part of the Gulf is certainly supportive of tropical development (warm water and minimal wind shear), it remains unclear how long the low will be over the water.

"Latest forecast data is now strongly suggesting this system - whatever it becomes - will move on a more westward track toward Louisiana", Borowski said.

The impacts would differ slightly based on which scenario ends up playing out, but either way a portion of the Gulf Coast is looking at a tremendous amount of rain, leading to a flooding event. This is based on the fact that sea surface temperatures are in the upper 80s, and upper-level wind shear is low in the eastern Gulf. Rain chances will begin today for Florida, Georgia & Alabama then shift west into Mississippi & Louisiana by Wednesday followed by a continued west movement of precipitation into Texas by the weekend.
