Unsettled weather continues - plus a look in the tropics

However, a tropical storm has not formed yet but is expected to form and impact those areas.

The disturbance over the northwestern Caribbean continues to meander over the Gulf of Honduras, just south of the Yucatan Peninsula. The good news is that Invest 93-L remains a poorly organized broad area of low pressure.

There's a high chance that a tropical wave now located over the western Caribbean Sea will develop into a storm early next week.

Forecast models continue to indicate the development of a weak tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico by early next week. Once data is collected from hurricane hunters, it can be plugged into forecast models to get a better idea of how this system may evolve.

The NHC adds the US Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunters are scheduled to investigate this area on Sunday, if necessary.

Development chances will increase for the system to become the next depression or tropical storm in the Atlantic Basin after it reaches the southern Gulf of Mexico Monday. As of now, the models are trying to forecast something that doesn't exist.

Meanwhile. a couple of unseasonably strong tropical waves have emerged off the coast of Africa & are moving west. Also, the heavy rain will likely reduce visibilities for motorists. At this time, it is moving west northwest at 15-20 miles per hour over the tropical Atlantic. Once Invest 93 pulls away from the land mass of the Yucatan and into the sufficiently warm waters of the southern Gulf of Mexico, further development and organization will be increasingly likely. It is extremely rare for anything to develop east of the Caribbean in June. Therefore the rain chance is very low for the morning, but it jumps to about a 60 percent coverage later in the day into the evening.
