We are tracking a tropical wave over the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize and Guatemala. This system is forecast to move WNW and emerge over the far southwestern Gulf of Mexico by late Thursday. Some development is then possible on Friday near the east coast of Mexico before the disturbance likely becomes absorbed by a cold front this weekend.
