By BBN Staff: As of this morning, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) is reporting that a large area of disturbed weather over the northwestern Caribbean Sea is associated with the remnants of Harvey.
Satellite images and surface observations indicate that the system has not become better organized and tropical cyclone development is not expected before the system moves inland over the Yucatan peninsula this morning.
However, environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for development when the system moves over the Bay of Campeche tonight or early Wednesday, and a tropical depression is likely to form over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday or Thursday.
According to the NHC, locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected to spread westward across Belize and the Yucatan peninsula during the next day or so. The Met service of Belize also projects overcast skies with showers and thunderstorms over most areas, but especially over northern and coastal areas.
The National Meteorological Service of Belize is advising small crafts to exercise caution for squally conditions near showers and thunderstorms.
