Tropical Storm Karl moving slowly and strengthening in Gulf of Mexico

Tropical Storm Karl is strengthening as it moves slowly in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico

While most models show the system moving into Mexico, a couple of models predict the storm will move toward Texas or even Louisiana

 forecasters are expecting Karl to run into environmental conditions that will inhibit development later in the week

preventing it from becoming a hurricane. However, some strengthening is in the forecast for today

Toward the end of the week, wind shear is forecast to increase as a cold front drops into the Gulf of Mexico

Karl is expected to move very little in the near future and does not appear at this time to be a direct threat to the United States
