A trough of low pressure over the South may turn into a tropical storm system, according to the National Hurricane Center.
The low pressure is moving southeast from the Tennessee area toward the Florida Panhandle, and the center pegged the chance of a storm system forming within the next five days at 40 percent. If the pressure does evolve into a storm, it will be named Barry.
“A trough of low pressure over the southeastern United States is forecast to move southward toward the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, where a broad low pressure area will likely form in a few days,” wrote the center at 8 a.m. Sunday morning. “Thereafter, upper-level winds support some development of this system while it meanders near the northeastern Gulf of Mexico coast through Friday.”
