Possible Developing Cyclone in Our Neighborhood

That mass of moist unstable air that I wrote about yesterday that I expect to arrive around Saturday appears to be showing signs of organization.

As we get deeper into the hurricane season and close to October is when cyclones in the Caribbean tend to come further west before turning north.  This tendency to come further west plus a cyclone that at such a low latitude increases the potential danger in eastern Guatemala.  October is the month to watch out for.  Hurricane Mitch is an example.  This system bears a close watch.
