NEMO: NEW TROPICAL DEPRESSION TRACKING NORTH TO GULF COAST

As forecast, that area of disturbance centered in the northwestern Caribbean developed overnight into Tropical Depression 14, but, thankfully for Belize, it is headed north away from us. According to the National Meteorological Service of Belize, “Radar data from Belize and infrared satellite imagery indicate that the low pressure system centered just off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula has continued to become better organized, with deep convection consolidating just to the northeast of the low-level center. (The Belize radar data was extremely helpful in locating the depression's center). The system continues to move northward slowly and farther away from Belize. Rainfall remains the only threat to Belize and portions of Central America, while tropical storm warnings are issued to portions of the Yucatan Peninsula and Western Cuba.”
