Bonnie dissipates

Published 5:36pm Saturday, July 24, 2010

Bonnie has degenerated into a disorganized area of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center say the storm is not expected to strengthen as it heads to the northern Gulf of Mexico toward Louisiana. Maximum sustained winds are 30 mph.

As a result, there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

The storm front is moving toward the west northwest near 14 mph. The low is expected to dissipate tonight or Sunday.

Forecasters say the front is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 1-2 inches over portions of southern Louisiana, southern Alabama and the far western Florida panhandle with possible isolated maximum amounts of 3 inches.
