System in the Gulf Could Become "Ingrid"

An area of low pressure being investigated in the Gulf of Mexico could become a tropical storm.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring an area of low pressure known as "invest 93L" located partially on the Yucatan Penninsula and the Gulf of Mexico, more specifically the Bay of Campeche.

At this time NHC gives this sytem an 80% chance of becoming a Tropical Depression and eventually a Tropical Storm.  If it gets a name it will be "Ingrid."

The models currently take the system and develop it into a Tropical Storm and steer it into the northeast coast of Mexico.

There is some hope that moisture from the sytem could make it into Texas and there is a long shot the moisture could make it into Texoma next week bringing us a chance of showers and thunderstorms, but time will tell.
