Pinpointing the tropics

Surface observations and radar data indicate that the area of low pressure previously over the north-central Gulf of Mexico has now moved inland about 15 miles west-northwest of Pensacola.

As this system continues to move further inland, tropical cyclone development is not expected.

However, the system continues to produce disorganized thunderstorms and gusty winds across portions of the Florida Panhandle and southern Alabama and this activity is expected to spread northeastward across the southeastern U.S. over the next day or so.
