By BBN Staff: Satellite data, surface observations, and radar data from Belize indicate that an area of low pressure is centered over the northwestern Caribbean Sea east of northern Belize.
According to a report from the National Hurricane Center (NHC), the associated showers and thunderstorms show signs of organization and the wind circulation is gradually becoming better defined.
The NHC says that environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive for further development, and a tropical depression or tropical storm is expected to form over the northwestern Caribbean Sea or the southern Gulf of Mexico on Sunday or Monday while the system moves slowly northward.
“Interests in the Yucatan peninsula, western Cuba, and the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico should monitor the progress of this system during the next several days, the NHC report further notes.
This disturbance will continue to bring torrential rains to portions of Belize, the Yucatan peninsula, and western Cuba into next week.
