An area of disturbed weather east of Belize was upgraded to the second tropical depression of the Atlantic Season Monday. TD#2 was located near the Belize coastline and will make landfall overnight.
The system will continue to move west-northwestward across Central America and Mexico through mid-week, perhaps gaining some strength as it edges near the Bay of Campeche Wednesday.
This system should remain primarily a heavy rain threat across Central America and Mexico through Thursday.
No threat to the U.S. is expected at this time, however there should be a general increase of tropical moisture and a few tropical waves following the depression across the Gulf of Mexico over the next one to two weeks.
This will keep the daily risk of tropical thundershowers in the forecast for much of the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico and Acadiana over the next week or two.
