By BBN Staff: The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Gamma.
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Punta Herrero to Dzilam in Mexico.
A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for South of Punta Herrero to Puerto Costa Maya Mexico and West of Dzilam to Progreso Mexico.
As of this morning, the center of Tropical Storm Gamma was located near latitude 19.7 North, longitude 87.2 West.
Gamma is moving toward the northwest near 9 mph (15 km/h), and this motion should continue at a slower forward speed today.
A turn toward the north is expected on Sunday, followed by a turn to the west or west-southwest on Sunday night or Monday.
On the forecast track, the center of Gamma should move inland over the eastern Yucatan Peninsula later today, and be near the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula on Sunday.
The NHC says that reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some slight additional strengthening is possible before Gamma makes landfall on the Yucatan Peninsula today.
After landfall, some weakening is expected.
