DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
At 1100 PM EDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Franklin was
located near latitude 16.4 North, longitude 83.0 West. Franklin is
moving toward the west-northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h) and this
general motion is expected to continue over the next 48 hours. On
the forecast track, the center will pass north of Honduras tonight
and early Monday, then approach the east coast of the Yucatan
peninsula on Monday afternoon. The system is forecast to move
across the Yucatan Peninsula Monday night and Tuesday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Strengthening is forecast before Franklin reaches the eastern coast
of the Yucatan peninsula.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km)
from the center, mainly to the northeast. NOAA buoy 42057 in the
northwest Caribbean Sea has recently reported peak sustained winds
of 40 mph with a gust to 49 mph.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches).
This system will cross the Yucatan Peninsula and then emerge into the Southwest Gulf of Mexico where it may have time to reach hurricane strength as it moves westward. This is not expected to impact the United States as the upper air pattern favors a westerly track over the next 4 days.
As far as the tropical wave in the East Central Atlantic is concerned, it continues to remain disorganized and conditions do not seem to favor development of this system going forward as upper air conditions are likely to grow hostile over the Tropical Atlantic over the next few days.
