Moving NW 9mph(15km/h)
Pressure 987mb

Marked improvement of storm structure overnight and steady/quick intensification has occurred. Per recon flight data, small pockets of the strongest winds are located on the N and NE sides in bands. Just offshore of the Yucatan now.

Sun 4-Oct 4pCDT,5pEDT
Winds 60mph(95km/h)
Not moving
Pressure 997mb
Center about 130miles(205km) NE of Progreso, Mexico
Center about 150miles(245km) NNW of Cozumel, Mexico
TS winds extend up to 160miles(260km) from center.

Crept across NE tip of the Yucatan, now stalled just North of there. Wind shear affecting the storm and should start to weaken soon but that may relax during the week as meanders around the S Gulf of Mexico.

The next storm, PTC26, may help determine Gamma's track later this week, but for now PTC26 looks to be the dominate storm later this week.

Mon 5-Oct 4pCDT,5pEDT
Winds 35mph(55km/h)
Drifting SW 5mph(7km/h)
Pressure 1005mb

Tropical Depression now, all warnings dropped. Was mainly a swirl of clouds earlier, now a few scattered showers around the Yucatan, which will continue the main threat of adding additional rainfall to the region as drifts back down towards Yucatan. 2-4in(50-100mm) to 8in(200mm) possible some locations.

See Delta thread for possible interaction with that system.

Becomes remnant Low. The spin of the Low will still throw scattered showers across the Yucatan. No more advisories from the NHC will be issued, an archive: https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2020/GAMMA.shtml?
