A Full Lineup of Tropical Storms

As can be seen in the NOAA image below we have a full lineup of storms on deck in the Atlantic.  Julia is a category 1 hurricane, Igor is a category 4 hurricane, and right in our backyard northeast of Honduras we have a mass of disorganized convective activity that has been gradually strengthening for the past few days as it moved into our area.  This region is expected to continue to develop and will likely become a cyclone.  A hurricane hunter aircraft is going to investigate today.

However it is not expected that any of these features will trouble us here in Guatemala.  If the activity northeast of Honduras develops into a cyclone we'll be on the wrong side of it to receive much moisture, if any, as it moves across the Yucatan.
