Tropical Storm Franklin menaces Mexico's Yucatan peninsula
08 August 2017, 12:27 | Katrina Lee
Potential Tropical Cyclone Seven forms in Caribbean
Tropical storm Franklin is heading for Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, carrying sustained winds of around 45 miles per hour and with some strengthening forecast before landfall.
A Hurricane Watch has been issued for a portion of the Yucatan Coast as Tropical Storm Franklin becomes more organized. It is now on a definite strengthening trend and could be upgraded to the season's first hurricane before it makes landfall on the Yucatan peninsula late Monday.
Along with winds at nearly hurricane speed, the tropical storm will potentially bring 10-foot waves to Mexico's Caribbean coast before moving down to the country's Gulf of Mexico, and then to eastern Mexico-potentially developing into a hurricane before it strikes the country a second time.
According to The Weather Channel, heavy rainfall and winds in excess of 40 miles per hour are expected to begin impacting places like Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel by Monday afternoon as Tropical Storm Franklin bears down on the region.
As of midday Sunday, the wave was moving west-northwest over the Caribbean Sea.
An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is set to fly into the storm tomorrow.
Thunderstorms continue to congeal and increase near the center of Franklin. We still need to keep a wary eye on the longer term when conditions might be more favorable for stronger development (late this week into the weekend).
