The SeaWiFS sensor onboard the OrbView-2 satellite captured this true-color image of Tropical Storm Bonnie on August 10 at 3:00 PM EDT. In this south-facing image Bonnie is located in the Gulf of Mexico, just north of the Yucatan Peninsula. The Gulf Coast of the U.S. mainland is located on the upper left-side of the image.
At the time this image was taken, Bonnie had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph with a minimum central pressure of 1004 millibars and was moving towards the north near 6 mph.

tropical depression east of the Lesser Antilles to landfall as a tropical
storm along the northern coast of Florida.
