Tropical Storm Marco Forms in Bay of Campeche, moving Generally West
      Mon Oct 06 2008 08:39 AM

7:30PM EDT Update
Tropical Depression 13 has formed into Tropical Storm Marco, with 65mph winds after Recon was sent to it. Thus Marco has a decent shot at becoming a hurricane before landfall.

Hurricane Watches are up from Cabo Rojo south to Veracruz in Mexico.

11AM EDT Update
Beating the odds, Tropical Depression 13 has formed in the Bay of Campeche, and should move at a fairly good clip to the west and west northwest. It has a chance to become a tropical storm before making landfall in Mexico.

Original Update
It's October, and things usually start to slow down,but there are usually plenty of chances for development in October. Wilma was an October system back in 2005.

Right now the tropics are quiet, with the exception of an area in the Bay of Campeche, which has a chance before encountering land. Most likely it will not form, or if it does it will be short lived, but it is worth watching.

Another wave in the eastern Atlantic is in a not so favorable area for development, but we'll still watch it over the next few days.

Right now we are in low gear and monitoring the tropics, but immediate concerns are just not there. Hopefully the quiet October will continue.
