Tropical Storm Franklin nears Mexico; Atlantic disturbance given low chance

Tropical Storm Franklin nears Mexico; Atlantic disturbance given low chance”

A tropical storm warning means that winds in excess of 40 mph are expected within 36 hours and that preparations for the storm should be rushed to completion.

Elsewhere, we are monitoring a tropical wave across the central tropical Atlantic, several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles. The storm is expected to clear the Yucatan Peninsula by Tuesday evening, but will head toward mainland Mexico between Tampico and Veracruz, making landfall on Thursday morning.

Tropical Storm Franklin could reach hurricane strength before it slams into Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, dumping a massive amount of rain and pushing a risky storm surge into the coast late Monday or early Tuesday.

Upper-level conditions are ripe for further strengthening, the National Hurricane Center said.

The sixth named tropical storm of the season, Franklin, formed early Monday in the western Caribbean Sea.

While many scouts believed he had the arm strength to be a National Football League quarterback, Jones was raw in his development. He'll reunited with Anthony Lynn , who served as the Bills interim head coach during that Week 17 game after firing of Rex Ryan.

An Air Force Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the tropical storm Monday afternoon.

Interests along the coasts of Honduras, Belize, and the Yucatan Peninsula have been advised to monitor the progress of that disturbance.

There is a 0-percent-chance of tropical development within the next 48 hours and a 20-percent-chance within the next five days.

In fact, the 2017 hurricane season is already showing characteristics similar to 1953, 1969, 1979, 2001 and 2004, which were years of numerous and destructive hurricanes including Hurricane Charley and Frances. Now, at best a weak El Nino is forecast which would typically suggest a higher level of Atlantic named storm activity, with greater chances of hurricane formation and landfalls.
