Tropical Storm Alex Strengthens 3:00 PM 26Jun10

As expected, Tropical Storm Alex has slowly strengthened as it moves over the water towards the Yucatan.

Storm center is now located appx: 17.3N 87.8W
Moving west at 12 MPH
Minimum central pressure has fallen to 996 mb
Maximum sustained winds 55 kts, 65 MPH

Computer models forecast Alex to come ashore near Chetumal, Mexico and continue west northwest, losing strength and becoming a depression while over the Yucatan, then to continue into the Gulf of Mexico. Once over the Gulf, Alex is expected to rapidly regain strength and become a hurricane before making landfall again near Tampico, Mexico.

Here in Rio Dulce we continue to receive gentle but steady rain.
