For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the potential for
tropical cyclone formation over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.
1. Eastern Pacific Tropical Storm Amanda, centered inland over
southeastern Guatemala, is forecast weaken into a remnant low or
dissipate over Guatemala or southeastern Mexico by tonight.
However, the remnants of Amanda are expected to move northwestward
within a broader area of disturbed weather, possibly emerging over
the southeastern Bay of Campeche on Monday. If the remnants move
back over water, environmental conditions appear conducive to
support some redevelopment of the system while it moves little
through the middle of this week. Regardless of redevelopment, heavy
rainfall is likely to continue over portions of southern Mexico
during the next few days. For additional information on the
rainfall threat, see products from your national meteorological
service. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook will be by 3 PM
EDT today, or earlier if necessary.
Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
