Tropical storm forms off Mexico coast; another could hit US

After a quiet start to the month of October, the tropics are beginning to bubble.

It's still too early to determine the exact track of the low and whether it will be a named tropical storm. One off the south Florida coast with another in the southern Caribbean.

With rain chances very low through Saturday, it's likely that this gets extended to the third longest dry spell on record in our area.

Tropical Depression Sixteen has formed in the southwestern Caribbean Sea, and it could be Tropical Storm Nate before the weekend. "When a tropical cyclone does occur, it tends to form on the eastern side of the [gyre] and rotates counterclockwise around the larger circulation".

The system is expected to bring heavy rains across Central America in the next few days.

But when it comes to the gulf, where forecasters are fairly certain Tropical Depression 16 is heading, conditions are in favor of development.

TD16, which will likely be Tropical Storm Nate soon, is forecast to continue to move northwest, possibly impacting the Yucatan Peninsula by the end of the week.

The storm became a tropical depression, which is a weak tropical storm, Wednesday morning off Nicaragua. On the Gulf Coast, areas including Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and southeastern Louisiana could be impacted. Locally heavy rain would be the most prominent impacts, with a lesser risk of gusty winds and isolated tornadoes across portions of the southeastern United States.

Make sure to stay up-to-date on the forecast and what's going on in the tropics this week.
