Despite the fact that we are now leaving prime time for tropical activity and getting to the late part of the season there is still a good bit of activity to talk about.
Tropical Depression 11 came into being in the Atlantic basin Saturday night. Winds are currently at 35 mph and it is moving to the north. This system at it's peak may be a weak tropical storm, but it will pose no threat to the United States. The storm will just slowly move north and fizzle out.
Closer to home, however, there is a disturbed area that will require some watching. The National Hurricane Center has it at a medium chance of developing over the next five days. Upper level winds will calm down and allow development, and this one may move into the Gulf of Mexico.
Current model runs, however, have the system being more of an impact along the Florida Peninsula. Regardless of development we will keep an eye on it.
In Acadiana the weather will get a little sloppier over the next several days with a cold front stalling along the coast. North and western parts of the state will pick up some rainfall on Sunday, but rain increases in coverage late Sunday night and for the commute to work Monday morning.
