The tropics are definitely warming up as a few areas are of interest, however to keep from dragging on we will focus our attention on just two locations. The first is that of the remnants of Gabrielle over the Dominican Republic. Gabrielle has quickly dissolved and is simply a low pressure system bringing rain there and Puerto Rico. Eventually the system will move out towards the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and fully dissipate. Overall, this system does not pose a threat to the United States. As for the second area of interest is in the Gulf of Mexico, specifically the Bay of Campeche. This system looks to have a 50% chance of development as is moves westward closer to the Mexican coast, where it will be mainly a rain maker for the area. Again, this system does not pose a threat to the United States.
