TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Grace made landfall in the Yucatan Peninsula Thursday morning.

Grace became the season's second hurricane Wednesday as it moved over the western Caribbean Sea, and on its forecast track, it will likely regain its title as a hurricane.

The tropical storm late Thursday night has max sustained winds of 65 mph and was moving west at 16 mph.

The storm is forecast to move west over the Bay of Campeche, where further re-intensification is expected before making a second landfall in mainland Mexico

Grace stays well south of the Big Bend region throughout its duration.
