Tropical Storm Franklin Moving West

Hurricane Watch SE Mexico Coast

Latest satellite loops show that the well defined core of Tropical Storm Franklin remains fairly impressive as it begins to move offshore. The satellite signature and the fact that water temperatures in the SW Gulf of Mexico are close to 90 degrees in spots, should allow Frankly to gain strength rather quickly. The question is whether there is time for this system to reach hurricane strength. There are also issues regarding northerly shear and some dry air coming into play as it nears the Southeast coast of Mexico. With systems like this the intensification forecast is very difficult so we will will just have to watch and see what happens. They can surprise in both directions in this area of the Gulf of Mexico.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Franklin was
located near latitude 20.2 North, longitude 90.3 West. Franklin is
moving toward the west-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h). A mainly
westward motion is expected over the next couple of days. On the
forecast track, the center of Franklin will move into the Bay of
Campeche in a few hours, move westward across the Bay of Campeche
tonight and Wednesday, and be near the coast of mainland Mexico
Wednesday night or early Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
A strengthening trend is likely to begin when the center moves
over water, and Franklin could be near hurricane intensity at
landfall in the southwest Gulf coast of Mexico.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1001 mb (29.56 inches).

Steering winds favor a westerly track and there is no threat to the United States from this system. Once inland the remnants would move across Mexico and probably exit on the Pacific side where regeneration into a Pacific tropical cyclone is possible.
