Tropical development likely in the Gulf of Mexico


On day two of the Atlantic Hurricane Season, there are two areas being monitored by the National Hurricane Center.


The first area is located near the Yucatan Peninsula and the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.


This low is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. While there are strong upper-level winds in this area, the system is likely to become a tropical depression or tropical storm during the next day or two.


The second area is a weak surface trough located northeast of the northwestern Bahamas.


The trough is producing showers and a few thunderstorms. Upper-level winds appear too strong for significant development.
