Stormy Gulf..... "Dalila" near the west coast of Mexico

An unseasonably strong upper level trough of low pressure is anchored over the Eastern half of the U.S. extending to the Northern Gulf of Mexico.  This set-up has ignited numerous heavy showers & t'storms over the far W. Atlantic, Eastern Gulf & -- in tandem with a weak tropical wave -- the Western & Northwest Caribbean.  The upper trough will slowly retrograde to the west & gradually weaken this week.  Numerous t'storm clusters will continue to develop but there are few signs of any surface development nor do models indicate surface development.  Still...the Gulf will be an area to watch this week.

The slow moving tropical wave continues to head W/NW over the far N/NE Caribbean & is bringing heavy rain to Hispaniola.  No development expected.

In the E. Pacific, "Dalila" is just off the coast of Central MexicoThough the center is expected to remain offshore, the storm is close enough to Mexico to produce gusty winds, heavy rain & dangerous surf.  "Dalila" will turn more northwest then west the next few days.
