TD 1 strengthened to tropical storm intensity overnight....thus, we have Alex. Alex continues to organize, but will move into the Yucatan Peninsula later tonight.
Alex will then emerge into the Gulf of Mexico around early Monday morning. At that point, it appears conditions would likely be supportive of strengthening again.
Alex will make another landfall down the line next week, but where is obviously a tough question. At this point, I am leaning toward south Texas or northern Mexico, but there is some chance, especially the stronger the system is, that it heads much farther north in the Gulf.
If you have interests from the central Gulf coast all of the way down through Mexico, you need to closely monitor Alex's progress.
