I wonder if this one could get in the Gulf and reform?

Lisa June 3rd, 2007 02:35 AM

Luanne - I don't think so. The center of the low is dissipating over the mountains of Guatemala and southern Mexico. It is very rare for a system to survive crossing the continent (narrower as it is down there) and reforming in the opposite ocean.
