Keep an eye on this storm brewing in warm southern gulf waters. This guy might have some influence on oil/gas prices soon.
From the weather underground:
Tropical Depression Fifteen is here, and is destined to become Tropical Storm Matthew by late this afternoon or this evening. An Air Force hurricane hunter aircraft left the storm near 2pm EDT this afternoon, and on their final pass through the strong northeast quadrant of the storm, found a substantial area of surface winds of 40 – 45 mph. These winds support upgrading TD 15 to Tropical Storm Matthew. The future track and intensity of TD 15 depends critically upon the storm’s interaction with land over the coming days. If TD 15 misses making landfall in Nicaragua and Honduras, and instead skirts the north coast of Honduras, the storm is likely to intensify into a hurricane by Sunday.
