SCATTERED MODERATE CONVECTION ARE OVER THE YUCATAN PENINSULA AND 
THE BAY OF CAMPECHE FROM 18N-21N BETWEEN 88W-97W. THIS SYSTEM IS

IMAGERY SHOWS A LARGE MOIST AREA FROM 3N-16N E OF 29W. SCATTERED 
SHOWERS ARE WITHIN 180 NM OF THE WAVE AXIS. 

A TROPICAL WAVE IS OVER THE CENTRAL TROPICAL ATLANTIC WITH AXIS 
EXTENDING FROM 19N40W TO 10N44W MOVING W AT 15 KT. SSMI TOTAL
