Watching Tropical Thunderstorms in the Southern Gulf

Watching Tropical Thunderstorms in the Southern Gulf

Posted: Updated:

An area of stormy weather over the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico has a medium chance (latest statistics say 50%) of becoming a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm over the next couple of days. An Air Force Reconnaissance Mission is scheduled to investigate the system Sunday. Environmental conditions appear to be favorable for development.

This system is not expected to come north, and anything that develops is expected to move west towards the Mexican state of Veracruz early next week.

So, even if a Tropical Depression or Storm develops it looks as though it would NOT be a threat for our stretch of the Gulf Coast.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic there are some weak tropical waves but nothing is expected to organize anytime soon.
