Hurricane Center: New system threatens Mexico

There is about a 50-50 chance that a system of bad weather in the Gulf of Mexico off the Mexican coast will turn into a tropical depression before heading inland, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As of 8 a.m. EDT, a system of low pressure located about 50 miles east-northeast of Veracruz, Mexico, had become better organized.

"Regardless of development, this system will bring rain and gusty winds to the southwestern Gulf coast of Mexico as it moves west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph," the Hurricane Center said in a statement.

If the system develops into a tropical storm or hurricane, it will be named Bret.
