Wednesday Evening Update

Tropical depression 2E changes little


As of 8:00 pm edt / 5:00 pm pdt tropical depression 2E was centered at 15.0°N / 96.3°W or about 50 miles sse of Puerto Angel, Mexico. Movement is wnw at about 3 mph. Top sustatined wind are estimated at 30 mph (NHC 30 mph).

The overall appearance of 2E is little different from this afternoon. Heavy showers and storms have built up on the coast of Mexico which wll produce locally 1-3" or rainfall. Forecasts call for the low to stay offshore and parallel the coast the next couple of days before moving into the open Pacific.

Thursday Morning Update

Tropical depression 2E weakening

Tropical depression 2E has struggled overnight and is hard to even locate a center of circulation.

As of 8:00 am edt / 5:00 am pdt tropical depression 2E was centered at 15.6°N / 99.0°W or about 30 miles sse of Puento Maldonado. (Our postion estimate is more to the west). Movement is wnw at about 10 mph. Top sustatined wind are estimated at 25 mph (NHC 30 mph).

Tropical depression 2E is struggling with its proximity to land and with the effects of another unoffical tropical depression that has developed to the west. If 2E still is able to survive both of these effects, it still may have a chance to become a tropical storm as it moves farther offshore.
