Tropical Blog: Watching a wave moving across the Yucatan


A tropical wave is moving from the Caribbean into the Gulf of Mexico.  The circulation is over land right now, but it is worth watching as it pushes west.  It is not likely anything will develop until the system pushes past the Yucatan Peninsula when it may have the chance to get better organized.
