HOLT, Fla., May 31, 2020—An eastern Pacific tropical storm could redevelop in the Gulf of Mexico next week according to the National Hurricane Center.

Eastern Pacific Tropical Storm Amanda, centered inland over southeastern Guatemala, is forecast to weaken into a remnant low or dissipate over Guatemala or southeastern Mexico by tonight.

However, the remnants of Amanda are expected to move northwestward, emerging over the southeastern Bay of Campeche Monday.

If the remnants move back over water, environmental conditions appear favorable to support some redevelopment of the system.

For now, this system has a 50 percent chance of development during the five-day forecast period.

The system in the central Atlantic Ocean east-southeast of Bermuda has dissipated and has no further chance of development.
