And so it begins… the Atlantic Hurricane season!

The National Hurricane Center has issued its first official two-day Tropical Weather Outlook for the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane season – read in full below.

A broad area of low pressure accompanied by cloudiness and showers is centered near the west coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The low is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward over the southern Bay of Campeche during the weekend and near the east coast of Mexico early next week.

Gradual development of this system is possible as long as it remains over water, and a tropical depression could form early next week.

Regardless of development, the disturbance will likely produce heavy rainfall over portions of southern and southeastern Mexico during the next few days.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.

Today marks the first day of the Atlantic hurricane season, which will run until November 30.
