Tropical Storm Ernesto is headed toward the Yucatan Peninsula and then over the Bay of Campeche toward Mexico. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the Coast of Honduras and a Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for the Grand Cayman Islands and for Coast of Mexico. A Hurricane Watch is also in effect for the Coast of Mexico. Also in the Atlantic, we have Tropical Depression Florence. Tropical Depression Florence has winds of 35mph with a pressure of 1009mbars.
