However, a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the western Caribbean Sea is associated with a trough of low pressure. This area of disturbed weather is expected to move westward over Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula during the next couple of days, and little, if any, development is expected during that time.

Environmental conditions could become slightly conducive for some development when the system moves into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week. Regardless of development, this disturbance will likely produce locally heavy rainfall across portions of Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and the Yucatan Peninsula through Thursday.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent
