Tropical Depression (TD) 5 Becomes Tropical Storm Dolly in the Bay of Campeche

VoIP SKYWARN Hurricane Net - 2 hours 21 min ago

Hello to all..

Tropical Depression (TD) 5 becomes Tropical Storm Dolly in the Bay of Campeche with maximum sustained winds of 45 MPH and a minimum central pressure of 1005 Millibars. Some slight additional strengthening is expected, however, Dolly is not expected to reach hurricane strength so we are not expecting activation of the VoIP Hurricane Net at this time but the VoIP Hurricane Net Management Team will continue to monitor the situation. A tropical storm warning is now in effect from Tuxpan to Barra El Mezquital Mexico.

Advisories from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) on Tropical Storm Dolly are available under the main menu of the voipwx.net web site as well as the voipwxnet Facebook and Twitter feeds. Advisories can also be seen on the NHC web site via the following link:

The VoIP Hurricane Net Management Team will continue to monitor the progress of Tropical Storm Dolly. Thanks to all for their continued support of the VoIP Hurricane Net!

Tropical Depression (TD) 5 Forms in the Bay of Campeche

VoIP SKYWARN Hurricane Net - Mon, 2014-09-01 18:39

Hello to all..

The area of disturbed weather that was emerging from the Yucatan Peninsula into the Bay of Campeche has continued to get better organized and is now a Tropical Depression and is classified as Tropical Depression (TD) 5 with maximum sustained winds of 30 MPH. TD 5 is expected to continue to organize and become a tropical storm but is not expected to reach hurricane strength so we are not expecting activation of the VoIP Hurricane Net at this time but the VoIP Hurricane Net Management Team will continue to monitor the situation. If TD 5 strengthens into a tropical storm as expected, it will be named Dolly. A tropical storm warning is in effect from Tuxpan to La Pesca Mexico.

Advisories from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) on TD 5 are available under the main menu of the voipwx.net web site as well as the voipwxnet Facebook and Twitter feeds. Advisories can also be seen on the NHC web site via the following link:

Atlantic Tropical Update - Monday 9/1/14 800 AM EDT/1200 UTC

VoIP SKYWARN Hurricane Net - Mon, 2014-09-01 06:49

Hello to all..

The latest Atlantic Tropical update from the National Hurricane Center has a broad area of low pressure that is emerging off the Yucatan Peninsula into the eastern part of the Bay of Campeche. Environmental conditions appear to be favorable for development and this system could become a tropical depression in the next day or two as it moves west-northwestward at 10 MPH and an Air Force reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system today if necessary. The main threat with the system currently is heavy rainfall for Southweast Mexico and the Yucatan Peninsula today through Tuesday and mainland Mexico for later Tuesday into Wednesday. The system has a high chance of development. The latest Tropical Weather Outlook can be seen off the main menu of the voipwx.net web site and on our Facebook and Twitter voipwxnet feeds. It can also be seen at the National Hurricane Center web site via the following link:

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov
