The Caribbean Sea

A surface trough extends from the SE Gulf of Mexico, through the Yucatan Channel, to a 1007 mb low pressure center that is near 23N84W, just to the north of the Gulf of Honduras. Numerous strong rainshowers are from 18N to the coast of NW Cuba between 82W and 86W. Numerous strong rainshowers also are inland, from 16N to 18N between 89W and 93W, covering the southern parts of the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize, Guatemala, and the Isthmus of Tehuantepec of southern Mexico. Other rainshowers also are in the NW corner of the Caribbean Sea, and parts of western Cuba, the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, and Central America from Honduras to El Salvador and Guatemala. The precipitation is showing some signs of organization in the northwestern Caribbean Sea. This system is forecast to move slowly northwestward across the Yucatan Peninsula today with limited development. Upper level winds are forecast to become more conducive for development later in the week. It is possible that a tropical depression may form on Thursday or Friday, while the disturbance moves across the western Gulf of Mexico. People who live in northeastern Mexico and the coast of Texas and Louisiana should monitor the progress of this system. Heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely in western Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula today.
