The disturbance just north of Puerto Rico (90L) has been torn apart by wind shear and is no longer a threat to develop. Tropical Depression 4-C that was headed towards Hawaii has been torn apart by wind shear and is no longer a threat to the islands. An area of disturbed weather over the western Gulf of Mexico is under 40 knots of wind shear, and is not a threat to develop through Sunday. By Monday, however, shear is expected to drop significantly in the Gulf, and we will have to watch this area for development.
Elsewhere in the tropics
The models continue to show the possibility of a tropical storm forming along the Pacific coast of Mexico early next week, possibly from the remains of Tropical Storm Olivia.
I'll have an update Sunday morning.
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
