Tropical Depression Alex, Update 1800 CST 27Jun10

Location: 19.2N 90.9W moving WNW at 8 kts
Minimum central pressure: 999 mb
Maximum sustained winds: 30 kts, gusting to 40 kts.

Alex is approaching the Bay of Campeche and even though the center of the storm is not yet over water, it is already showing signs of strengthening as more of the storm moves over the warm water of the Gulf of Mexico. Alex is expected to strengthen to a tropical storm by midnight tonight.

The storm continues to trigger convection and rain over Guatemala, southern Mexico, and the Gulf. Here in Rio Dulce, Izabal, it has not rained all day and we had a sunny afternoon, but that could easily change.
