Tropical Storm Fernand forms in western Gulf of Mexico”

"Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development and a tropical depression is likely to form by late this week while the system moves westward to west-northwestward".

Fernand now sits around 150 miles off the coast of La Pesca, Mexico, and was tracked moving west at 7 mph with wind speeds of 40 mph.

Please see the latest forecast for Dorian issued by the National Hurricane Center.

Hurricane season runs from June through November.

The disturbance has maximum sustained winds near 35 miles per hour with higher gusts.

While Hurricane Dorian is still spinning through the Bahamas, a new storm has formed.

It was centered about 160 miles east of La Pesca, Mexico, and was moving west near 7 miles per hour.

Despite the possibility Dorian would no longer make landfall in Florida, as previously suspected, the NHC urged residents to continue to prepare, as life-threatening storm surges, heavy rain and wind could be expected. Moving over to the south-central Gulf of Mexico the hurricane center began investigating some disorganized showers and thunderstorms on Saturday associated with a broad area of low pressure.

Landfall is expected Wednesday night somewhere between El Americano and La Pesca in Mexico.

According to an update at 7am CDT (1pm BST), the barrelling storm is now moving westwards at 7mph with maximum sustained winds of 35mph.

The next name on the list is Fernand, but another disturbance over the eastern Atlantic is forming and may be a tropical depression or tropical storm soon.

The NHC is giving the tropical wave a 70 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression within five days.
