It hasn't been a week that the Rio Grande Valley dealt with the effects of Hurricane Alex and we're now dealing with another possible storm that is forming in the Gulf of México. Could it be Bonnie that hits us this time? Probably not. This according to the national weather service.

Although the chances are low today, scientists say things can change and change very rapidly. The forecast shows the tropical disturbance moving west northwest over the Yucatán Peninsula.

The tropical disturbance was producing showers and thunderstorms over the Yucatán Peninsula and other parts of the Eastern Gulf of México. The system is moving at 10 to 15 miles per hour and has a 30% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next two days.

The tropical system is located in the same region where hurricane Alex first formed two weeks ago. That hurricane hit just south of the Rio Grande Valley.
