Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
519 AM EDT Wed Jun 29 2022

.SYNOPSIS...An area of low pressure centered over the 
northwestern Gulf of Mexico continues to produce disorganized 
showers and thunderstorms. This system is forecast to move slowly 
westward or west-southwestward and approach the coast of Texas 
during the next day or two. Slow development of the low is 
possible, and it could become a short-lived tropical depression 
near the coast before it moves inland tonight or Thursday. 
Regardless of development, heavy rain will be possible along 
portions of the Texas coast later this week. Otherwise, a weak 
ridge will continue to dominate the remainder of the Gulf waters 
through the week supporting mainly gentle to moderate winds and 
slight to moderate seas.
