Keeping an eye on the tropics: 2 systems could become hurricanes

(The "A" storm this year was Arlene, a weak tropical storm that formed in the ocean well before the start of hurricane season).

Clusters of thunderstorms will rumble over the area Tuesday and Wednesday, the product of a tropical cyclone developing in the Gulf of Mexico.

A hurricane hunter aircraft is expected to investigate the disturbance on Sunday, if necessary, which Hathaway said is standard protocol. National Hurricane Center stated that the government of Barbados has issued a tropical storm warning.

The system approaching the Winward Islands has 40 miles per hour sustained winds, but does not yet have a closed circulation to formally declare it a tropical storm.

Su Oh leads the two Australians who made the cut, the Victorian adding a third round of 65 to move into a share of 18th. Lydia Ko of New Zealand hits her tee shot on the third hole during the final round of the Kingsmill Championship.

Tropical storm warnings have been issued for Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada and Venezuela from Pedernales to Cumana including Isla de Margarita.

The further east this system goes the better the scenario is for our area, with a more westward track increasing the flooding threat for the entire area along with tropical storm-like winds and coastal flooding. That circulation is expected to drift into the southern Gulf of Mexico Monday.

"A broad area of low pressure extends from north of the Yucatan Peninsula across adjacent portions of the southern Gulf of Mexico", according to an advisory.

It is expected to dissipate in about 72 hours.

And he blamed Republicans for keeping things the way they are - and Democrats for not standing up strongly enough to stop them. On June 14, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of IL opened fire during a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

Gulf Coast meteorologist Rocco Calaci says the system is likely to develop into Tropical Storm Bret in the Gulf and weaken as it interacts with the shoreline.
