All As Expected

Weather in the Atlantic is developing as forecast in the previous post. Hurricane Humberto has become the first hurricane of this season in the eastern Atlantic. Humberto is making 75 MPH winds and appears to have already made its turn to the right, now heading NNW, so it is no longer of any concern to those in the Caribbean.  Gabrielle remains steady and is dropping lots of rain on Bermuda.

The large region of thunderstorms east of Belize continues as expected. It should move over land today bringing heavy rain and some wind to Belize, Eastern Guatemala, and the Yucatan. Once it moves into the Bay of Campeche, conditions should be good for probable development into a cyclone.
