Weather Service: Watch the Gulf

Low pressure system could develop

A low pressure system currently located off the east coast of Florida coast is expected to enter the Gulf of Mexico during the week and could possibly strengthen into a tropical storm or hurricane that could threaten the Texas and Louisiana coasts over the weekend.

Roger Erickson, meteorologist at the National Weather Service's Lake Charles office, said area residents should begin monitoring the situation.

"We do not know if it will develop into a tropical storm or not, but everyone should be keeping an eye on the weather report now to monitor what is going on," he said.
