The NASA Aqua satellite observed Tropical Storm Boris merging with a low pressure area over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, a NASA press release reported.

Formerly known as Tropical Depression 2E, the last remnants of Boris merged with System 90L over southern Mexico on June 5. NASA’s Aqua satellite measured cloud top temperatures in both systems with the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder instrument.

Other satellites, including NOAA’s GOES-East satellite and NASA’s TRMM, captured visuals and monitored rainfall totals as Boris traveled across the Central American nation.
