The tropics remain active this morning, with 3 systems currently in the Atlantic Ocean. Hurricane Humberto is barely hanging on to Category 1 strength with winds at 80 mph as of the 5am advisory. Humberto will be on a weakening trend over the next few days as it makes its turn to the west into the open Atlantic, falling to tropical storm strength over the weekend. It will be no threat to land.

Tropical Depression Gabrielle has begun to fall apart and will continue to weaken and eventually dissipate over the next 24-48 hours. Gabrielle will continue drifting to the north, and is not expected to impact the United States or other land.

 Tropical Depression 10 is currently sitting in the Bay of Campeche and is continuing its overnight strengthening trend. If the current pattern holds, it may be named Tropical Storm Ingrid over the weekend. It is expected to sit in the Bay of Campeche for the next few days and then bring heavy rains and gusty winds to northern Mexico. It is also not expected to impact the United States.
