The National Hurricane Center has given the circulation of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche a medium chance of formation in the next 48 hours.

Forecasters say that the storm has become a little more defined on Thursday and that associated showers and thunderstorms continue to show signs of organization.

The system, according to the NHC, could become a short-lived tropical depression before it merges with a cold front by late Friday, October 25.

That front is expected to reach the Northwest Gulf on Friday morning and push into the Bay of Campeche on Firday night.

The low pressure has at 50 percent chance of formation in the next 48 hours.
