Disturbance in Gulf of Mexico may become tropical depression, hurricane center says


A tropical disturbance over the Yucatan Peninsula may yet become a tropical depression, if only for a short time, the National Hurricane Center said Thursday.

“Early morning visible satellite images indicate that the circulation of the low pressure area in the Bay of Campeche has become a little better defined. The associated showers and thunderstorms continue to show signs of organization, and this system could become a short-lived tropical depression before it merges with a cold front by late Friday,” the hurricane center said in its latest Tropical Weather Outlook.

Once it hits the cold front, the depression — should it form — would quickly fall apart.

As of Thursday morning, the system was being given a 50% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone.

Tropical cyclones — systems rotating around a center of low pressure — are classified by their wind speed ranging from tropical depression to tropical storm to hurricane.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs through Nov. 30.
