We are tracking a broad area of low pressure over the Bay of Campeche. Recent satellite wind data show the low does not have a well-defined circulation. This system is expected to move slowly NW toward the northeastern coast of Mexico and may become a tropical cyclone before it moves inland in a day or two.
