Tropical Storm Alex Update 6:00 AM 27Jun10

Location: 18.4N 89.9W, 94 nm SSE of Campeche, Mexico
Movement: WNW at 10 knots
Minimum central pressure: 1000 mb
Maximum sustained winds: 35 kts, gusting to 45 kts

Alex continues to take advantage of the broad upper level ridge that provides it with good outflow in all directions except the south so the storm has not weakened quite as much as expected. Widespread rain and thunderstorms related to Alex continue across much of Central America but most of the deep convection is in the Yucatan, across souther Mexico, and into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico right now.
