Another T.S. forms in the Atlantic Ocean
As of 5am Thursday morning another Tropical Storm was formed over the Atlantic Ocean, the name of the system is Gordon. Gordon is a small cyclone and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 45 miles mainly east from the center. At of the 11am advisory Gordon has strengthened with sustained winds now at 50mph and the center is located 640 miles east of Bermuda. This systems forecast path will be east -northeast keeping the cyclone moving over the open waters of the North Atlantic for the next few days. Some strengthening is forecasted during the next 48 hours and Gordon could become a Hurricane over the weekend.
There is one more area the National Hurricane Center is watching it is a tropical wave associated with the remnants of Tropical Depression 7 and is located over southeastern Mexico and Western Yucatan. This disturbance is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the Bay of Campeche. The main concern will be the locally heavy rainfall possible for portions of Central America and Southern Mexico during the day.
*****Locally our forecast calls for another hot and humid day. With our summer like pattern in place we will see that chance of sea breeze storms by the afternoon. These storms will not be widespread but there is a chance some storms could linger and become strong producing heavy rain and gusty winds around the metro areas. Otherwise expect highs to reach the lower 90's with "feels like" temperatures well into the triple digits.
Have a great day!
