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.
