Special Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
750 PM EDT Sun May 31 2020

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential for
tropical cyclone formation over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.

The remnants of Eastern Pacific Tropical Storm Amanda are currently
located over northern Guatemala. This system is forecast to move
northwestward to northward within a broader area of disturbed
weather, and it could emerge over the southeastern Bay of Campeche
on Monday. If the remnants move back over water, environmental
conditions appear conducive to support some development, and a new
tropical depression could form while the system moves little through
the middle of this week. Regardless of tropical cyclone formation,
heavy rainfall is likely to continue over portions of southern
Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize, and western Honduras during
the next few days. For additional information on the rainfall
threat, see products from your national meteorological service. The
next update on this system will be in the first regularly scheduled
Tropical Weather Outlook of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season,
which will be issued by 2 AM EDT Monday morning.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.

When will we have a clearer understanding of where this system could be headed? I worry about the short time frame.

My guess on when we will know is after it forms and leaves the Bay of Campeche. Until then it could just meander down there for days possibly or it could leave and head towards land almost immediately. But we won’t know until it happens. That’s why the models are so split on timing, while they all try to figure out what’s gonna happen once this disturbance forms over the Bay of Campeche.

I don't know your individual situation in New Orleans, but what will you need to do if it is announced on Thursday afternoon that a Category 2 hurricane is expected to make landfall near New Orleans on Monday night (June 8) - Tuesday morning (June 9)?

You didn't specifiy, so...

Landfall at Morgan City - Houma?
Yes since there is so much uncertainty this far out. Scroll up to see how there are models/projections to the East of New Orleans to Corpus Christi, Texas. Landfall at Morgan City - Houma puts New Orleans on the bad side of the hurricane.


Category 2?
I wouldn't rule it out. It is better to prepare for a stronger storm and breath a sigh of relief when it isn't that strong than to prepare for a weak storm and be surprised when it is stronger than you expected.

Stick around for good information in this Forum. If this does transition from potential to something definite, there might be a specifc discussion thread created just for it.

Usually this time of year the tropical systems are lopsided to the eastern side. So the systems that would impact Baton Rouge the most would be landfalling systems generally west of Houma, then all the way back to Galveson, TX. I guess it depends how quick the storm leaves the Bay of Campeche.
