Morning Express with Robin Meade

A fast, personal, and smart blend of all the news you want in the morning. We call it "News in the Fast Lane." So buckle up.

New storm brewing in the Gulf of Mexico

The FL radar is more active than a Lions/49ers postgame handshake this morning. There is a huge circulation getting better organized over the Yucatan Chanel right now, and it may become a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next 48 hours. Even if it doesn’t get a name or number, it will still throw tons of rain to the SE and Mid Atlantic through Wednesday. I’ll have the latest radar for you, but the whole mass is going to steer to the NE over the next few days. That means parched TX/LA gets no rain as a strong cold front moves Eastward.

The clouds and rain are finally breaking down for the Great Lakes/MW/NE today, but the wind will still bounce you around in the air if you are headed there today. I would say just a one-bagger for fliers today, but delays may stretch to over ½ hour in the region. I’ll have the latest.

The warm air is hanging around for another day over the SE/S (except for rain-cooled FL) and Phoenix will hit 100 today. In between it will dry out and be breezy in West TX, Fire danger is back for today there. A storm over the Rockies is producing some snow over the higher elevations in CO and WY with rain in NE, KS and SD. The West looks ok today, no problems.
