Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we now have Tropical Storm Gordon. Winds are at 40mph with a pressure of 1011mbars. Movement North-Northeast at 14mph. Gordon is expected to intensify and may become a hurricane by early Saturday morning. Not a threat to the United States. Also, in the Atlantic, remnants of Tropical Depression Seven are located over Western Honduras and the coast of Belize. There is only a slight chance of this system of becoming a tropical cyclone once it gets over the Bay of Campeche and this system has a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone again during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward at 15 to 20mph. In the Eastern Pacific, we have Tropical Depression Hector. Winds are at 30mph with a pressure of 1004mbars. Movement is North-Northwest at 5mph. Hector should dissipate soon.
Hope yall are having a great Thursday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
