Weather disturbance

Hurricane websites are now tracking a weather disturbance below Honduras. It may mean some rain next week - stay tuned to this thread

The weather hurricane sites are noted in this top question

https:/…58730017

QUOTE:

As we head into the latter portion of the week, we will be monitoring the area near Central America for more robust thunderstorm activity to develop. There is some possibility a piece of this more significant thunderstorm activity could break off from the monsoonal trough and lift northward into the western Caribbean. The warm water over this region is more than conducive for tropical development, however, wind shear will be remain strong across the Gulf of Mexico. This will likely inhibit rapid development of this feature. This will be something AccuWeather meteorologists will closely monitor over the next several days.

We've been reading about thus since Sunday. We're in Akumal now, heading to Cozumel tomorrow, Wednesday. Couple of questions.

1. It looks like the biggest impact for us will be Wednesday and Thursday? Does that seem accurate?

2. Will the ferry to Cozumel still run during a storm?

Hoping it will pass through fast. We leave Cozumel on Sunday so hoping to get a couple of clear days on the island!!

1) Does that seem accurate? - weather has its own mind so hard to guess

2) Its not a storm (yet) . Ferries are rarely suspended for just rain but could get wavy so best to take Gravel.

Looks like a lot of rain for Yucatan Thursday / Friday before it moves to the GOM.

Yep, looks as if it will go across the Yucatan below Tulum

Little chance on becoming an official "tropical storm" but will bring rain for a few days - I don't see it lasting long

Thanks for this update! We will be traveling to the Riviera Maya next Thursday. Is this disturbance expected to last this long? I've been looking up the 10 day forecasts on multiple websites and they are almost all predicting complete wash-out days which has me a little bummed.

This weather will be long gone by next week

As mentioned many times, ignore the normal weather forecasts during the wet season
