Gamma is expected to move over the Yucatan Peninsula tomorrow, Saturday. As of 8 PM, the storm was moving northwest at 9 mph with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. According to the NHC, it was about 135 miles south-southeast of Cozumel, Mexico.
The Mexican Government has issued a tropical storm warning from Punta Herrero to Cabo Catoche and a tropical storm watch for the south of Punta Herrero to Puerto Costa Maya.
Forecasters are stating that Gamma is expected to turn to the northwest and slowdown in the next couple of days.
