TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK



Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 PM EDT Sun Jun 2 2019

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad area of low pressure over the Bay of Campeche remain disorganized. This system is expected to move slowly northwestward toward the coast of Mexico, and may become a tropical cyclone before it moves inland in a day or two. Regardless of development, the disturbance will likely produce heavy rainfall over portions of southern and eastern Mexico during the next few days. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft will investigate the disturbance Monday afternoon, if necessary.
Interests along the Gulf coast of Mexico should monitor the progress of this system.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.
