Tropical Storm Franklin Forms In Western Caribbean

Late Sunday evening, the National Hurricane Center began issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Franklin in the western Caribbean. Moving into an increasingly favorable environment for further development,  Franklin is likely to strengthen as it moves toward the Yucatan over the next 24 hours. Tropical Storm warnings are now in effect for the Yucatan Peninsula, as impacts in that area may be felt as early as Monday afternoon. From there, this system should move across the Bay of Campeche and into eastern Mexico late Wednesday into early Thursday. Heavy rain and gusty winds are likely in the aforementioned areas, but at this time, no U.S. impacts are expected.
