Sommething is off here. Statements in the above discussion dont make any sense...

TD Seven is well past us and in the G of Mexico, there is a tropical wave east of Africa which may have an impact at some point but the opening paragraph doesnt make sense.

that is from the Belize weekly weather outlook aug 12-20 by Mr. Frutos. It was correct on aug 12 when that forecast went out.

more recent info is above it in todays Belize NWS report:

The remnants of Tropical Depression number 7 are showing some signs of development in the extreme southwestern Gulf of Mexico and have a medium chance of re-developing into a tropical cyclone over the next day or two.

He will have a new weekEND report out today probably.
