association with a strong tropical wave located over the
west-central Caribbean Sea. This system is moving

tropical storm could form over the northwestern Caribbean Sea before
it reaches the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico late Monday or early
Tuesday. Even if formation does not occur before the system reaches
the Yucatan peninsula, a tropical depression or tropical storm could
form over the Bay of Campeche by midweek. The Air Force Reserve
reconnaissance aircraft scheduled for today has been canceled, but a
new mission has been scheduled for Monday, if necessary. Interests
along the coasts of Honduras, Belize, and the Yucatan Peninsula
should monitor the progress of this disturbance.

slow development of this system is possible during the next several
days while it moves generally west-northwestward across the tropical
Atlantic at about 15 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
