Tropical depression 10 E will possibly affect land by early next week. I will start updates on this tropical cyclone if necessary.

Irwin is a minimal hurricane that may bring tropical storm affects to the west coast of Mexico early next week. I will start updates if significant effects are anticipated on the coast / coastal areas.

I don't believe that Irwin is a 90 mph hurricane. Satellite imagery shows some weakening overnight. It may be a minimal hurricane of 75 mph IMO. Irwin may have effects on the western coast of Mexico by the middle of next week. I will start updates Monday if this becomes more likely.

Irwin is still expected to be a weak tropical cyclone in the wake of Jova and not affect Mexico until the middle to later part of the week. I will start updates in a few days if necessary.

The hurricane center downgraded Irwin to a tropical depresssion as convection weakened some last night. Since then, deep convection has built up and I believe that Irwin is still a tropical storm. NHC may have been a bit premature with downgrading.

Irwin is being badly sheared an will likely be downgraded to a depression again.

Irwin became a minimal tropical storm again yesterday. It stalled just west of Manzanillo and is now drifiting slowly south with the heaviest rain remaining offshore. Irwin is not a significant threat to Mexico or cruiselines. Seas near the center of Irwin are near 13 feet.

Irwin remains a minimal tropical storm west of the coast of west-central Mexico. There are no effects for the resorts of western Mexico. Swell up to 12 feet is possible near the circulation of Irwin offshore.

Irwin is barely hanging on as a tropical depression well west of the west central coast of Mexico. It is not a threat to residents or tourists.
