High Chance Remains for Tropical Cyclone Development This Week
The National Hurricane Center has been monitoring an area of weather moving west across the northwestern Carribbean Sea, which they say still has a chance at becoming a tropical cyclone late this week.
On Wednesday, the Hurricane Center released notice that the weather formation is forecast to move across the Yucatan Peninsula and into the Bay of Campeche by Thursday. The Hurricane Center says that, gradually, conditions should become more conducive for the formation of a tropical depression by the weekend.
The Hurricane Center says the system a 40-percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next two days, and a 70-percent chance of that happening in the next five days. It will likely move west-northwest or northwest through the Bay of Campeche, and could impact Veracruz or Tamaulipas, Mexico.
They forecast increased swells and seas over the weekend and early next week, and an increased threat from rip currents Saturday through Tuesday.
