It’s the first day of the Atlantic hurricane season, and we’re keeping an eye on what’s left of eastern Pacific Tropical Storm Amanda.  Amanda’s remnants are currently centered over Central America and are bringing heavy rain to the region.  This system will move into the Bay of Campeche during the next few days.  The National Hurricane Center gives it a high chance of developing into a tropical depression over the next five days.  If the system does develop, it will receive a new name from the Atlantic hurricane list.
