By Aaron Humes: The tropical wave currently crossing Belize from east to west has a chance at developing into the next tropical depression, though only after leaving our shores.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center’s outlook for tonight as of six p.m. Belize time says the northern part of the wave is interacting with a surface trough over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, producing a large but disorganized area of showers and thunderstorms over our general area.
It predicts that with favorable conditions the system could gradually develop into a tropical depression on Sunday or Monday and immediately hit the east coast of Mexico. Chances of this through 48 hours are estimated at 60 percent and through five days at 80 percent.
Either way, expect continued heavy rain through Saturday and potential flash flooding.
Other than a wave coming off the African continent headed for the Cape Verde Islands and the still-churning Hurricane Larry south of Canada, no further areas of development are expected for the next few days.
