GOOD NEWS FOR THE NORTHEAST GULF

Tropical storm ALEX expected to keep a more southerly track


As mentioned in my previous blog, odds were very unlikely that ALEX would be pulled to a more northerly track due to the weakness of the upper trough associated with next week’s cold front moving across the Gulf states. Consequently, ALEX will probably continue on a track farther south in the direction of the upper Mexican or lower Texas coast through midweek.

UPDATE 5PM: Latest info from the National Hurricane Center and hurricane hunter aircraft indicates ALEX is moving more westerly (280 degrees). This means the storm will cross the Yucatan peninsula from Belize to the Bay of Campeche this weekend to threaten the northeast Mexican coast by Wednesday.
