Tropical Storm Arlene Forms in the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico

Hello to all…

Tropical Storm Arlene has formed over the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico this evening and is the first tropical system of the 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season. A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the coast of Northeastern Mexico from Barra De Nautla northward to Bahia Algodones. At this time, Arlene is not expected to reach hurricane status. It is expected that Arlene’s peak intensity will be a 60 MPH tropical storm, however, with the limitations in the science of intensity prediction of tropical systems, Arlene’s status as a tropical system will be monitored closely in case it unexpectedly intensified into a hurricane.

Arlene advisory information can be seen on the VoIPWXNet web site by looking under Atlantic Tropical Products off the Main Menu of the web site. Arlene Advisory information can also be seen off the National Hurricane Center web site via the following link:
