Tropical Storm Franklin continues to move over land in the Yucatan Peninsula.

The storm is expected to weaken a bit as it slowly moves west/northwest. Very heavy rain will continue to impact the Yucatan and Belize through Wednesday.

Those areas could see three to six inches of rain with some isolated amount over ten inches.

As Franklin moves back over the Bay of Campeche, it will gain some strength. A Hurricane Watch has been issued for the eastern coast of Mexico.

More heavy rain will impact parts of Mexico as Franklin moves back on shore late Wednesday and early Thursday. Life threatening flash flooding and mudslides will be possible. Tropical storm force winds can also extend outward more than 100 miles from the center of this storm.
