'Low' chance system off Mexican Gulf coast goes tropical

The National Weather Service is keeping an eye on "a broad area of low pressure" over the Bay of Campeche off the Mexican Gulf coast.

Currently, there is only a 20 percent chance of the system going tropical within the next 48 hours, but upper-level winds "are forecast to become more favorable over the next couple of days," the Weather Service said in a bulletin Monday morning.

Regardless of how it develops, the system was expected to bring locally heavy rains and gusty winds to portions of eastern Mexico and Central America during the next day or two as it moves slowly to the west-northwest.
