the weather people say "A gradual improvement is underway."
"in the Caribbean there is a large cluster of highly disorganized thunderstorm activity just to the southeast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Conditions are not favorable for these thunderstorms to develop into an organized tropical system, however, as moderate wind shear currently over the system will keep the system in check. As these thunderstorms move further north into the Gulf of Mexico, they will move into an even less conducive environment for development."
so maybe they the mess will start drifting north soon. Let's hope so.
