Quick update as TD25 is upgraded to Tropical Storm Gamma:
As of 8 PM EDT, Tropical Depression Twenty-Five has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Gamma with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. The National Hurricane Center is forecasting a maximum strength of 60 mph winds, and it's not expected to threaten the United States, at least not within the next 6 days. We still have to watch the system behind it, which has a 40% chance of tropical development within the next 5 days.
RAINFALL: Gamma is expected to produce rainfall of 4 to 8 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches in portions of the Yucatan Peninsula and far western Cuba. A separate area of significant rain is expected to develop well away from the center in the Mexican states of Campeche, Tabasco, and northern Chiapas with rainfall of 8 to 12 inches and isolated maximum amounts of 20 inches. This rainfall may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides. Rainfall of 1 to 3 inches with maximum amounts of 5 inches is expected in the Bay Islands of Honduras and over the Cayman Islands.
