TD-1E Forms, Should Pose No Threat

By: hurricaneben , 9:09 PM GMT on May 14, 2012

While Invest 92L seems to be fading out of the picture, we now have our first tropical depression of the Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season--and it's not a threat to land, just a day before the actual season starts in that basin. It is packing winds of around 35 MPH and moving due west at 8 MPH. It should remain well out at sea and no land masses stand in the direct path of this system. Gradual strengthening is expected and this should attain tropical storm status as early as tonight then maybe get a bit beyond that--likely peaking at 45 to 50 MPH before conditions start to become less favorable for development in the latter part of the day tomorrow. Nonetheless, this should remain a fish storm and only threaten shipping interests over the open Pacific waters. I wouldn't worry at all about any land impacts other than slightly increased surf off the Pacific Coast of Mexico. I'll have an update tomorrow (either morning or afternoon).
