Tropical Storm Franklin Approaches Yucatan Peninsula

Tropical Storm Franklin showed signs of strengthening as it approached the Yucatan Peninsula Monday morning.

Maximum sustained winds were at 50 miles per hour and the National Hurricane Center says Franklin could have winds swirling at 65 miles per hour while making landfall Tuesday.

Franklin is expected to reemerge into the Bay of Campeche by mid-week, moving towards the coast of Mexico for a second landfall on Thursday.

The storm is not a threat to the Gulf Coast at this time.

Forecasters at the NHC are still watching an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms in the Atlantic. It has a low chance of further development over the next five days.
