Tropical Depression Chantal became such at 3 PM Belize time Tuesday.
Her main center of circulation moved duly though slowly inland on the
Yucatan Peninsula west by west-northwestward from Corozal, Belize and
Chetumal, Mexico. Behind her she left a large cloudmass offshore,
visible mainly from North Ambergris Caye, the internal dynamics of
which caused a number of excursions and alarums. Eventually that faded
away as Chantal lost strength of the land.

Chantal at 9 pm was 90 miles east of Carmen, Mexico, maintaining her
circulation though with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles an hour,
expected to proceed in that mode, at about seven miles an hour, and
emerge in the Bay of Campeche sometime Wednesday. Mexico has issued a
tropical storm warning on the Gulf Coast of the Yucatan from Campeche
to Carmen, and a tropical storm watch from Carmen to Veracruz. Central
pressure was 1005 millibars.

It is likely Chantal will resume tropical storm strength over the Bay
of Campeche, but continue west-northwest and soon go ashore after
crossing the bay.

Elsewhere on the briny deep, a mid-evening banger of some magnitude
leaped off the northeast coast of Honduras, probably going nowhere but
shaping up interestingly.

A cloudmess grazed the Leeward islands headed northwest, trying to get
togther in turbulent air, and another sped toward the southern
Caribbean, smaller but trying the same. Neither has received press
notice from the National Hurricane Center yet.

You can push the button, make that map wiggle, and marvel withal.
