By BBN Staff: The National Hurricane Center (NHC) continues to monitor the remnants of Tropical Storm Harvey.
As of this afternoon, the NHC reports that showers and thunderstorm activity has increased today in association with the remnants of Harvey, but the system still lacks a well-defined center of circulation.
Some development of this disturbance is still possible before it reaches the coast of Belize or the Yucatan Peninsula early Tuesday.
The system is forecast to move into the Bay of Campeche early Wednesday, where environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for redevelopment into a tropical cyclone.
Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely to spread westward across Honduras, Belize, and the Yucatan Peninsula during the next couple of days.
According to the NHC, there is a 70 percent formation chance through the next 48 hours.
The National Meteorological Service of Belize has indicated that the remnants of Harvey will begin to affect Belize within the next 24 hours.
