Further Development is Happening

The disturbance discussed in my previous post is developing further. It continues to move northwest towards the Yucatan. A distinct low is developing in the center of the highlighted region north of Honduras and upper level winds are favorable for additional development. NHC now gives a 50% chance that this system develops into a cyclone within the next three days and a 60% chance in the next five days. Folks in Belize, the Yucatan, and around the southern Gulf of Mexico should keep an eye on this system.

The second system shown on the graphic, south of the Cape Verde Islands, has a high chance of development.
