Tropical Storm Franklin Gathering Strength and Heading For Mainland

Well, Harming wind blasts of 60-80 miles per hour, and also perilous glimmer flooding, will keep on threatening lives and property over the Yucatan Peninsula into Tuesday afternoon.

Tropical Storm Watches are in effect from Sabancuy to Puerto de Veracruz along the southern portion of the Gulf of Mexico.

Life-threatening flooding, damaging winds and rough seas will continue to batter the Yucatan Peninsula through at least Tuesday afternoon before Franklin emerges into the Bay of Campeche. Franklin is forecast to make landfall over the Yucatan at nearly the exact same location, date and hour as Ernesto. However, the National Hurricane Center is forecasting it to strengthen. As it crosses the peninsula tonight and Tuesday, churning out 60 miles per hour winds, some areas could see as much as 12 inches of rain.

Heavy rain and flash flooding are possible over the Yucatan Peninsula and southeastern Mexico this week. Another system in the central Atlantic has about a 20 percent chance of becoming a named storm and could impact the eastern Caribbean later this week. They are also expecting there to be between two to four major hurricanes, which means they are Category 3, 4, or 5. The visible-light image, captured by the MODIS instrument aboard Aqua, showed Franklin's western quadrant over the Yucatan Peninsula as Franklin's center remained over the northwestern Caribbean Sea. Instead, Tropical Storm Franklin is expected to hit Mexico twice this week, first passing over the Yucatan Peninsula on Monday night before heading out into the water again.

Franklin will then move into the southwest Gulf of Mexico (Bay of Campeche) by late Tuesday, and may gain some strength before making a final landfall in eastern Mexico Thursday.

The United States should not be directly affected by this system, although parts of the Texas Gulf Coast could see high surf and risky rip currents later this week, the Weather Channel said.
