The tropical scene remains rather quiet and non-eventful for the weekend and early next week, despite the approach of the historical peak of seasonal activity in the next couple of weeks.

The disturbance in the norther Gulf will track to the west through the next two days, spreading periods of heavy rain across the central and western Gulf coastline through the weekend.  Chances of it becoming more organized are fairly low.  Regardless of future development, its impacts locally will be reduced over the next 48 hours.

Moisture sources near the Yucatan Peninsula and near the Cape Verde Islands do not exhibit immediate signs of further strengthening or development.
