I’ve tracked many different storms over the years, but never one that started in the Pacific and then came over into the Gulf of Mexico and re-developed. Will Agatha be my first? I guess I’ll have to just track and find out.
Nothing to worry about at the moment for the Gulf. However, we are watching the development of Agatha. Currently, there is only a 40% chance of development for the Gulf and IF that happens, it could threaten the NW Gulf Coast by the end of this week (Friday, June 3rd, 2022)
ZCZC MIATWOAT ALL TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 800 AM EDT Mon May 30 2022 For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: 1. Near the Yucatan Peninsula: A large and complex area of low pressure is expected to develop across Central America, the Yucatan Peninsula, and the southwest Gulf of Mexico in a few days, partially related to the remnants of Hurricane Agatha from the eastern Pacific. Some gradual development is possible within this system in the far southwest Gulf of Mexico around mid-week or in the northwest Caribbean by the latter part of this week as it drifts eastward or northeastward. Regardless of development, locally heavy rains will be possible across southern Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, Guatemala, and Belize through the week. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
