Tropical Storm Stan made landfall in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula early Sunday. Although the storm was weakening Sunday, forecasters said it could re-strengthen over the Gulf of Mexico in the next day or so.

Eastern Yucatan and northern Belize were told to expect 5 to 10 inches of rain.

Tropical storm warnings were issued for the Yucatan Peninsula.

The 2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season has been one of the most active and destructive seasons in recent history. Several hurricane experts have released updated predictions for the remaining two months of the season.

According to Colorado State University's Dr. William Gray - one of the world's foremost experts on hurricanes - "We project that October will continue the trend of above-average activity that we have witnessed in the preceding four months of the hurricane season."

Gray's updated prediction also stated they "expect that by the time the 2005 hurricane season is over, we will witness seasonal tropical cyclone activity at near-record levels."
