Tracking the Tropics: Remnants of Tropical Storm Amanda from the Pacific will have to be watched in the coming days. If it emerges into the Bay of Campeche, it will have the potential to become a tropical depression or storm in the coming days – Next named storm will be Cristobal. Model guidance will continue to vary over the coming days, so be sure to check back in with us daily. Some models show it moving over the Gulf and then turning toward Texas and Mexico as a depression or storm. Others show it moving toward the northern Gulf coast as a depression or storm. It’s still too early to determine what will happen with the system. All in all, wherever it ends up, it will bring very heavy rain with it – especially to the east of it. This is still 6-8 days out. A lot can change between now and then.
