The tropics remained active Tuesday over the eastern-most Pacific northward through Mexico into the Bay of Campeche.
Tropical Storm Boris, along the Pacific Southern Mexican Coast, was slowly inching toward land while keeping the threat of flooding rains and mudslides from Mexico eastward through Central America over the next several days.
Boris is part of a nearly stationary monsoonal surge of tropical moisture that extends into the Southern and Eastern Gulf of Mexico.
While Boris is expected to move inland and dissipate over land later this week, there may be the opportunity for another area of low pressure to slowly develop in the Southern Gulf of Mexico in the vicinity of the Bay of Campeche through the Yucatan Peninsula.
If anything were to develop in the Southern Gulf, it would be very slow to move as long-range models keep disturbed weather in the same area through next week thanks to the ridge of high pressure building over the Northern Gulf of Mexico through this weekend.
Eventually this deep tropical moisture and whatever, if any, low pressure were to develop, will likely drift toward the Eastern Gulf, Florida and the Bahamas into next week as the upper level westerlies near Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi would shunt any system away from our part of the Gulf.
