The storm in the sea off New Orleans continues, hardly moved, is an odd thing, it appears to be a rather benign area of rotating low level air with a little cloud, and a very active ITCZ swell up activity on its southern edge. But the swell up has really developed very large and very thick high cloud. Wunderground gives this TS BARRY
but it still does not look well connected. The position on Wunderground, that is the second picture, I believe is wrong, and it was clearly wrong yesterday.
The NOAA is trying to scare people. . . Not sure if deliberate or not, but that dark area looks terrible and scary, but actually all it is showing is the % probability of 40 mph winds. ITCZ swellups can cause winds of over 40 mph.
We will see over the next few days.
The other potential storm area in the Atlantic does have a little more cloud and there is more activity developing on the African land.
