Thursday, October 23, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: Tropical Depression 9 did not survive its encounter with land on Wednesday night when it came ashore in Campeche, Mexico.
TD-9 quickly fell apart and is tonight listed as Invest 94L.
The remnant low continues to move across the Yucatan Peninsula and Belize in a south-easterly direction.
Movement is estimated at 5 miles per hour, which, at this forward speed, will see the system emerge over the waters of the northwest Caribbean Sea on Friday.
Conditions are not favourable for any significant development once the system reaches the Caribbean Sea in the days ahead.
What becomes of Invest 94L will be determined by a cold front in the Gulf of Mexico heading into next week and the system could be absorbed into that cold from coming down from the US mainland.
The Belize Weather Bureau in its 6 pm forecast says that cloudy to overcast skies with some outbreaks of showers and thunderstorms will affect the central and northern parts of the country tonight and on Friday.
Westerly to south-westerly winds at between 5 and 15 knots will produce light choppy sea conditions.
But gusty conditions near showers and thunderstorms will make the sea locally rough. Therefore operators of small craft on the coastal areas of Belize are being advised to exercise caution in rough seas.
The wet and showery conditions will continue into Saturday; but hey conditions will start improving on Saturday.
