In the Atlantic Ocean:
Tropical depression Gabrielle is located approximately 690 mi (1110 km) SSW of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Gabrielle is forecast to become a Post-tropical cyclone when it nears Nova Scotia late today. Rainfall warnings have been issued for sections of central and eastern Nova Scotia.
Hurricane Humberto is located about 630 mi (1015 km) NW of the Cape Verde Islands. It appears that Humberto may have peaked in intensity. There are suggestions by the global models that Humberto may attempt a comeback starting around day 5, but it is quite uncertain how much of a tropical cyclone will be remaining at that time after experiencing substantial vertical shear for nearly four days.
Tropical depression Ten is located about 135 mi (215 km) ENE of Veracruz, Mexico. A slow and erratic motion over the far southern Gulf of Mexico is expected during the next couple of days. The depression is expected to become a tropical storm later today. The depression is expected to produce 10 to 15 inches of rain over a large part of eastern Mexico, with isolated amounts around 25 inches possible. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect.
In the Western Pacific:
Tropical depression 16w (Man-Yi) is located approximately 201 nm south-southeast of Iwo To, Japan.
Gulf of Mexico:
A low pressure system (Invest 93L) developing over the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico’s Bay of Campeche is generating heavy rains over the Yucatan Peninsula and adjacent waters. The computer models predict a landfall location along the Mexican coast between Veracruz and a location a few hundred miles south of the Texas/Mexico border by early next week.
The high levels of moisture and slow motion of 93L make it a very dangerous rainfall threat, and I expect rainfall amounts of 5 – 10 inches will affect portions of the Mexican coast between Veracruz and Brownsville, Texas over the next five days. An added danger is the presence of tropical disturbance 90E in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, on the other side of Mexico. If 93L intensifies sufficiently, it could draw in the moisture from 90E across Southern Mexico, resulting in torrential rains on both the Pacific and Atlantic sides of Southern Mexico.
