NHC Backing Off Development Chances In Caribbean

The National Hurricane Center continued to back off development chances for a tropical wave in the Caribbean Sea on Wednesday.

"An area of low pressure located inland over eastern Nicaragua is accompanied by a disorganized area of showers and thunderstorms. Additional development is unlikely during the next day or so while the low remains inland," said the NHC. "The system is forecast to move slowly northwestward and could emerge over the Gulf of Honduras where some development is possible on Friday. Some development is also possible over the southern Bay of Campeche by early next week."

"Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is possible over Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, and southeastern Mexico through the weekend," forecasters added.

Plans for a hurricane hunter aircraft to check out the system today were canceled.

The 2022 Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30.
