Gulf of Mexico becomes area of concern

6:47 p.m. ET ET Wed.,Oct.6,104


Anthony Diaz, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



The final advisory on Tropical Depression Kay was issued early Wednesday morning as it has developed into a drifting mass of convection over 700 miles away from the Mexican coast. A disturbance located about 700 miles WSW of Kay continues to look healthy and could become a depression within the next day or two.


Thunderstorms continue to flare up in the western Gulf of Mexico. Although very widely disorganized, models continue to hint toward further development, especially along the northwest Gulf Coast. This area will be of concern as steering winds are favorable for pushing any newly formed systems east towards Florida.


In the western Pacific, Ma-on has strengthened to a minimal typhoon and is forecasted to grow even stronger as it churns WNW through the Philippine Sea. Ma-on could make a run at southern Japan by Saturday (U.S. time).
