For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms continue over the Bay of 
Campeche and southern Mexico in association with a broad low 
pressure area.  This system will move little today and tonight, and 
little if any development is expected during that time due 
to interaction with land.  However, the broad disturbance should 
begin to move northward on Thursday, and a tropical depression is 
likely to form by late Thursday or on Friday when the low moves 
across the western Gulf of Mexico.  Regardless of development, heavy 
rainfall will continue over portions of Central America and southern 
Mexico during the next several days.  Heavy rains should also begin 
to affect portions of the northern Gulf Coast on Friday.  Please 
consult products from your local meteorological service for more
