Tropical Depression 13E continues to strengthen; Watching another tropical wave

8/25/2016 4:46:54 AM

Tropical Depression 13E is located about 500 miles west-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico and continues to look healthier based on latest satellite imagery. New convection appears to be consolidating around the center of circulation. Gradual strengthening is forecast and it may become a tropical storm during the day on Thursday. Eventually, it may become a hurricane by this weekend. Warm water and relatively light wind shear will allow T.D. 13E to strengthen this week. Regardless of strengthening, there will be no direct impact to land through early next week.

Elsewhere, a cluster of thunderstorms over 1,000 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California is becoming better organized. This cluster of storms could become a tropical depression or even a tropical storm over the next couple of days. It will track to the west-northwest across the open waters of the eastern Pacific and it will be no threat to any land masses through the weekend.
