Disturbance may enter Gulf of Mexico by end of the week

A north-northwestward motion at a faster forward speed is forecast to begin later Wednesday and continue through Friday night.

As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, the storm was labeled a tropical depression with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour with higher gusts.

The eye of the storm is forecast to move across northeastern Nicaragua and Honduras through Thursday night.

The storm, which is still a tropical storm as of the National Hurricane Center's 2 p.m. advisory Thursday morning, is expected to head toward the US this weekend.

The governments of Honduras and Nicaragua have issued tropical storm warnings ahead of the storm as it makes its way northward.

The National Hurricane Center is tracking a tropical depression that it predicts could become a hurricane before making landfall that could bring substantial rain to the Upstate over the weekend. It is possible our area will see the effects arriving by Saturday evening. Right now this system does not have a closed center and is not classified tropically in terms of a depression or storm.

It will emerge into the northwestern Caribbean Sea on Friday on its current forecast track. It had once been expected to thread the gap between Mexico and Cuba's west coast, and to make a potential landfall in the Florida Panhandle.

So far this year, there have been 13 named tropical storms in the Atlantic Basin, eight of which were hurricanes.

The system will likely produce heavy rains over portions of Central America during the next few days.

Forecasts show that it will move over Central America and head to the open Gulf of Mexico, where it will likely strengthen further, before heading to the USA mainland.
