Saturday Morning Update

Tropical Depression 14-e classified

Not much change from our previous update. Just a little more convection over the center. Enough of a change though for NHC to officially classify 14-e. It will likely be upgraded to tropical storm Kevin by this evening. Forecasts call for a general northwest motion which will limit intensification over cooler water.

This feature is not a threat to Mexico.

As of 11:00 am edt / 8:00 am pdt tropical depression 14-e was centered near 13.3° N / 121.5° or about 1010 miles southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexcio. Top sustained winds are estimated at 35 mph. It is moving northwest at about 9 mph.

Kevin will be downgraded to tropical depression on the next advisory. It has been sheared badly and should not be classified as a storm any longer. This is our last update on Kevin.
