    Nice to have the links handy again, Sir.

    You’re not going to need to water the lawn for a couple of days, but doubtful you’ll otherwise need to change the routine.

    Here’s the 5-day projection – looks like some rain to drown my new roof garden, although the tomatillos are eating it up – or drinking it up, rather – and growing like a weed every time it rains (you can almost see them growing). Looks a bit like a lead-in to Jack and the Beanstalk, but since they’re already on the rooftop they won’t have all that far to go…

    Now it’s orange, so changes afoot – keep your goo-loshes handy (footy). Also, looks like it’s trying to transit the Yucatan strait between us and Cuba.

    Big red X just missed us (it was only yellow-to-orange while passing through), now up north about 60 miles at the tip of the peninsula, with projection of 70% or more of some nasty business yet to come. Got lots of rain here, tulepan flowers and tomatillos growing like a weed, wind tattering the banana leaves, but really nice refreshing breezes after a hot summer. Double whammy if Florence hits the East Coast and this developing red X thing hits the Texas Gulf Coast at about the same time…

    Tropical Storm Watch for Riviera Maya.  Get all the details from the National Hurricane Center.

    The Government of Mexico has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula from Tulum to Cabo Catoche.

    The interactive cone map is below. Looks like worst winds arriving later tomorrow (Sunday evening). But expect rounds of heavy rains on and off the next couple days.

    The 7pm update is now available from the NHC.

    Highlights for the Riviera Maya:
    “The system appears to be moving northward near 6 mph (9 km/h), and this general motion is expected for the next couple of days. On the forecast track, the low or the tropical cyclone should move near the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico tonight through Sunday night, and then move into the southern Gulf of Mexico on Monday.

    Maximum sustained winds remain near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. Strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days, and the system is expected to become a tropical depression later tonight or on Sunday and a tropical storm on Sunday night. A reconnaissance plane will investigate the system on Sunday.”

    RAINFALL: The low is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 7 inches over western Cuba and 2 to 4 inches over the Yucatan peninsula, Belize, and northern Honduras through Tuesday.”
