The unnamed storm in the Gulf of Mexico that we featured in our earlier post here today has continued to strengthen and has now reached tropical storm strength, becoming BILL the 2nd named tropical cyclone of the 2015 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

The satellite image above shows copious amounts of rain being generated by BILL over Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, northern Mexico,  much of the Gulf and Central America.
