For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
1. A broad low pressure system located over the northeastern portion
of Honduras is producing a large area of showers and thunderstorms
over eastern Honduras, northern Nicaragua, and portions of the
western Caribbean Sea. This system is expected to move near or
just offshore of the northern coast of Honduras, and if the center
moves offshore, a tropical depression could form before moving
inland over Belize by late Tuesday. Regardless of development,
gusty winds are possible over portions of Belize and the Yucatan
Peninsula on Tuesday. In addition, locally heavy rainfall, which
could cause flash flooding, is possible across portions of Central
America during the next few days. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane
Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system Tuesday
afternoon, if necessary.
