Tropical System Could Form in Mexico
However, time is running short for a strong tropical disturbance over Central America to develop into the next tropical depression for the Atlantic basin.
The disturbance’s low pressure, also known as a tropical wave, covered a significant area from the northwest Caribbean to southeast Mexico on Friday morning, with the system’s core over that region. Thunderstorms with torrential rain continued to erupt across the area, particularly in parts of the southwest Gulf of Mexico, despite the system’s center remaining over land, a sign that forecasters said indicated some strengthening.
According to the National Hurricane Center, a hurricane hunter aircraft from the Air Force Reserve is planned to check on the system on Friday afternoon, if necessary.
The major effect of the system is currently expected to be locally heavy rain from northeastern Mexico to parts of South Texas from Saturday through Sunday, according to US meteorologists. Seas are also expected to begin to build over the southwest Gulf, from South Texas to Mexico, through this weekend.
This weekend, the majority of the system’s shower and thunderstorm activity may move into Mexico from south of the Texas border, according to Meteorologists . The system may bring South Texas heavy, flooding rain if it travels closer to the northwest.
A tropical rainfall that produced 2 to 10 inches of rain recently impacted a large portion of South Texas and the lower Rio Grande Valley. In addition to delivering much-needed drought relief, this system also delivered some unwanted flooding. After several days of dry weather this week, the area may tolerate a modest amount of rain, but torrential downpours could result in additional flooding.
