Remains of tropical depression nine to head ashore again

The remnants of tropical depression nine are now tucked up in the far northwestern Caribbean in the tail end of the dominant frontal system we described yesterday.

Associated squalls and thunderstorms have diminished over the past 24 hours but it does look increasingly as if this will detach, strengthen and move west-nor'west, moving inland into Belize late Tuesday or early Wednesday as either a disturbance or depression but is not expected to become a tropical storm. Once it moves inland, it will dissipate over northern Guatemala and southern Mexico.

Pointless disturbance fifty one is about a day and a half west of the Leeward Islands and is moving west near at 12 knots. Strong upper-level wind shear across the region will prevent development. Stand easy
