Disturbance six passing Belize

Thursday 16th June 2016

Disturbance six is passing close to the coast of Belize and moving to the west-nor'west at 11 knots. The disturbance will remain weak as it crosses the Yucatan peninsula on Saturday bringing with it scattered showers and storms. By Saturday night, the system is expected to emerge over the Bay of Campeche where it has a slight chance of becoming a tropical depression or minimal tropical storm by the time it moves ashore into Veracruz or Tamaulipas late Monday or Tuesday. Squalls can be expected in the Bay of Campeche late Saturday through to Tuesday with enhanced rainfall for northeastern Mexico and possibly as far north as South Texas.

Enthusiasts continue to monitor a region off the mid Atlantic Coast. An area of low pressure is expected to develop off the North Carolina coast late on Friday and early Saturday and will probably meander off the eastern seaboard for several days with a slight chance of acquiring enough tropical characteristics to be named. Regardless of development, the system will be capable of producing rough surf, gusty 30 knot winds and heavy squalls. Though most of the heavy weather will likely remain offshore, a few heavy squalls could impact the North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware coastline Friday night and Saturday.

Stand easy.
