About the current weather situation:
An extensive area of low pressure is located on the southeast coast of Mexico, in the Bay of Campeche. It is likely to develop and become a tropical cyclone towards the end of this week, as it travels to the northeast. As it passes through the Gulf of Mexico it will be generating abundant rains and occasional storms, however, it is not predicted to affect the western region of Cuba.
