In the western Gulf of Mexico, forecasters are keeping their eye on a group of thunderstorms which have a 60% chance of strengthening to become tropical storm Barry.

The National Hurricane Center has stated that the southern Bay of Campeche does not have well-defined circulation.

In a recent statement, a senior hurricane specialist wrote, "This system is expected to move slowly northwestward toward the northeastern coast of Mexico, and may become a tropical cyclone before it moves inland in a day or two."

But, that would only happen if the tropical disturbance becomes a depression, by reaching 39 miles per hour.



Although the possible tropical storm isn't routed for the Sunshine State, keep it on your radar and prepare for hurricane season.
