Tropical Storm Franklin has formed in the Atlantic.

On Sunday evening, a closed low-level circulation became better defined and The National Hurricane Center officially named the system, Franklin. Shortly after, it will enter the Bay of Campeche and re-intensify before making a second landfall Wednesday night into Thursday along the eastern shores of mainland Mexico.

The hurricane watch was issued by the government of Mexico, and is in effect for the coast from Chetumal to Punta Allen, according to the National Hurricane Center.

This new product by the NHC allows them to start issuing advisories on the storm, as well as watches and warnings.

Tropical Storm Franklin is strengthening in the Gulf of Mexico and may hit Mexico twice this week as it moves toward land.

Tropical Storm Franklin continues to strengthen this morning with deep convection continuing to wrap around the low-level center.

"Franklin will bring flooding rainfall with totals of 4-8 inches in some locations, along with damaging wind gusts of 40-60 miles per hour to the Yucatan Peninsula", said AccuWeather Meteorologist Kyle Brown.

Rip currents and coastal flooding are also expected.

In fact, the 2017 hurricane season is already showing characteristics similar to 1953, 1969, 1979, 2001 and 2004, which were years of numerous and destructive hurricanes including Hurricane Charley and Frances. Further development is considered unlikely, with forecast odds of it developing into a tropical system at 10 percent in the next 48 hours, and 30 percent in the next five days.

For the second time in a couple of weeks, a tropical disturbance has blossomed into a full-fledged tropical storm nearly overnight not far from the shore.
