U.S. NHC says 50% chance for cyclone formation near Southern Mexico

(Reuters) - A broad area of low pressure located in the Bay of Campeche, just offshore of the coast of Southern Mexico, has a 50% chance of becoming a cyclone in the next 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Wednesday.

“Gradual development is possible, and a tropical or subtropical cyclone could form late this week over the western or central Gulf of Mexico while the system is moving generally north-eastward,” the NHC said.
