The National Hurricane Center has issued a TROPICAL STORM WARNING for the Louisiana coast from Intracoastal City (Marsh Island) to the mouth of the Pearl River at the Louisiana-Mississippi state line. A tropical cyclone was reported likely to form early next week over the southern or central Gulf of Mexico as a result.

After a dry Tuesday, our attention may turn to the Gulf of Mexico where some models are hinting that a tropical depression or storm may develop in the next few days. Shear exceeds 50 knots in a west/east belt from the Gulf of Mexico across the Caribbean & across much of the Central Atlantic & will likely help - at least initially - to keep "93L" - heavily weighted to the east. Its maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour with weakening expected to begin later in the day.

There's a high chance that a tropical wave now located over the western Caribbean Sea will develop into a storm early next week.

Carla Fendi, philanthropist and fashion force, dies at 79
Although Fendi was founded in 1925, it wasn't until 25 years later she was recruited to take over the PR and marketing team. A lover of art and music, Fendi was chief patron of the Two Worlds arts festival in the Umbrian city of Spoleto.

"The broad area of low pressure located over the northwestern Caribbean Sea continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms". Models typically have a tougher time getting a handle on a system's path until it gets a closed circulation. The hurricane center has no record of any storm forming that far to the east at this point in June. Movement is towards the west at 23mph...37km/h with maximum sustained winds of 40mph...65km/h. There is still a lot of uncertainty in the forecast track of this system: will it go west to Texas or north to Florida's panhandle?

A second area to watch, Invest 92, is a tropical wave way out in the Atlantic Ocean.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 60 miles, mainly northwest through northeast of the center.
