Weather Update....

Posted by deanna on June 18, 2009, 7:22 am

Woke up to a gentle rain this morning; the tree
frogs are singing, our cats are stalking around
shaking their paws and frowning at the wet grass (yes, cats really do frown)and we saw our first crab yesterday, so it appears summer has definitely arrived! Here's the latest Tropical Weather Outlook:

Statement as of 5:00 am PDT on June 18, 2009

For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude..

Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure located about 275 miles southwest of Manzanillo Mexico have continued to become better organized overnight...and a tropical
depression could be forming. If this trend continues...advisories could be initiated later today. There is a high chance...greater than 50 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Regardless of development...locally heavy rains may spread over portions of southwestern Mexico during the next day or two as the system moves slowly northwestward to northward.

Showers and thunderstorms are associated with a broad area of low pressure located about 850 miles southwest of Manzanillo Mexico. While this system has changed little in organization over the past several hours...some slow development of this system is possible during the next day or two. There is a low chance...less than 30 percent.... of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Elsewhere...tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 48 hours.

Sounds like more rain is on the way. I'll post
rainfall totals tomorrow - yesterday produced
approximately .20 inch.
