New area to watch this week in the tropics
Late Sunday evening the National Hurricane Center issued its daily tropical weather outlook highlighting an area near Central America for possible development later in the week.
Right now it is too early to tell what, if anything, will form, but this is a fairly typical area for development this time of year.
The National Hurricane Center is expecting an area of low pressure to develop in that highlighted area and track northwestward towards Central America and Mexico late this week. Sea surface temperatures in the Caribbean are running at or just above normal and could support tropical development, although wind shear has been strong across the Gulf lately.
