By BBN Staff: UPDATE: The low pressure system located near the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and Belize continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. It is producing winds up to gale force strength several hundred miles to the east and northeast of the center, which are not affecting the country.
Although surface pressures are falling over the north western Caribbean sea, the system still lacks a well-defined center of circulation.
Regardless of development, heavy rains are expected to continue over portions of Central America, and Belize. If necessary, an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system today.
Gradual development of this system is expected while it moves slowly north-north-westward across the Yucatan Peninsula, and then over the southern or central Gulf of Mexico today and tomorrow, where a tropical or subtropical cyclone is likely to form. This system is expected to bring moderate to heavy rainfall over the country with the heaviest rainfall likely over central, southern and some coastal areas. The concerns remain localized flooding of low-lying communities and flash floods near rivers and streams especially in the south.
NEMO emergency coordinators can be reached as follows:
The public is asked to continue to pay close attention only to the official reports and advisories and remain alert.
