The remnants of Tropical Storm Amanda from the Pacific Ocean is expected to move into the Southwest Gulf of Mexico later Monday or Monday night. Conditions are conducive for development in the Bay of Campeche. That is why the National Hurricane Center is giving Invest 93L a high chance for formation in the coming days.
The system will likely become our next named storm Cristobal. It will likely station itself over the southern Gulf of Mexico for several days, bringing heavy rain to portions of southern Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize, and western Honduras during the next few days before it eventually lifts to the north. It is still way too early to determine where it will end up. Model guidance has shown it could end up anywhere from Texas/Mexico to the Florida Panhandle. Confidence is low at this time. If it does track toward to the northern Gulf coast, it would likely not be until the weekend or early next week. All Gulf states will need to monitor this closely. Wherever it does end up, it will bring very heavy rain with it.
Please stay tuned and check back in with the StormTracker Team on-air and online.
The 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season officially began on Monday June 1st. Keep in mind, all it takes is one!
