For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

 

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently upgraded Tropical Storm Gonzalo, located over the central tropical Atlantic.

 

1. Recent satellite wind data indicate that a broad low pressure area has formed in association with the tropical wave over the central Gulf of Mexico. However, the accompanying shower and thunderstorm activity is currently poorly organized. Conditions appear conducive for additional development, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next day or two as the system moves west-northwestward at about 10 mph. Interests in the western Gulf of Mexico should monitor the progress of this system, as watches or warnings could be required for portions of the coasts of Texas and Louisiana later today or tonight. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system this

afternoon.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

 

Public Advisories on Tropical Storm Gonzalo are issued under WMO

header WTNT32 KNHC and under AWIPS header MIATCPAT2.
