Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, it remains mostly quiet. Computer forecast models continue to hint at something tropical forming in the Gulf of Mexico late next week. In the Eastern Pacific, Carlotta made landfall last night and has since weakened to a tropical depression. Winds are at 35mph with a pressure of 1000mbars. Movement is West-Northwest at 12mph. Primary threats will continue to be very heavy rainfall and flash flooding. A broad area of low pressure that is located about 540 miles Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico is producing disorganized showers and a few thunderstorms.
