Hurricane Agatha is expected to become a tropical depression sometime today after hitting Mexico on the Pacific ocean side as a powerful Category 2 hurricane.  But, according to the latest cone of concern, the storm could enter the Gulf of Mexica and regroup as the Atlantic Hurricane season’s first named storm.

It’s already been downgraded to a tropical storm after hitting the coast of southern Mexico yesterday with 105 mile an hour winds.

Now, the remnants of Agatha could move over the narrow peninsula of southern Mexico and then enter the Gulf of Mexico and become our problem as the first storm of the hurricane season…Alex.
