    First Tropical Activity of the Season

    5/23/2014, 3:01:18 AM

    The Pacific hurricane season has come alive for the first time this season today. An area of disturbed weather a little over 600 miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, has become organized enough to become the first tropical depression.

    Further development is likely as it moves slowly west-northwest and it can become a tropical storm, named Amanda, in the next 24 hours.

    This will be no threat to land at all as it moves in a westward motion on the south side of a ridge.

    This is likely to be a busy, busy hurricane season in the Eastern Pacific with a solid El Nino in place.
