Hurricane Center monitoring storms over Caribbean Sea

Two major category 5 hurricanes, Irma and Maria, ploughed through the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the U.S. west coast during 2017's extremely active Atlantic storm season, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.

Right now, it is simply an area of disturbed weather in the tropics.

However, that is far from certain as of Monday.

With maximum sustained winds of 115mph, Hurricane Bud is expected to rip through the western coasts of Mexico in the coming days.

As of Monday afternoon the disturbance consisted of an area of rain and storms over the southwestern Caribbean along with a tropical wave over northwest Venezuela.

Due to the interaction with Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula, little development is expected at this time.

Over five days, as the storm moves north into the Gulf of Mexico, that likelihood grows to only 20 percent.

The disturbance will likely produce locally heavy rainfall across portions of Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and the Yucatan Peninsula through Thursday, the Hurricane Center said.

A system has to have a closed center of circulation and winds of at least 39 miles per hour to be considered a tropical storm and get a name.

Hurricane forecasters are watching another blob of showers and thunderstorms in what's turning out to be a messy start to the Atlantic hurricane season. A second system, Hurricane Bud, has since developed in the same region and is expected to send moist, humid air streaming into Southern California late this week.
