Lots of action in the far Pacific but nothing that
will affect us so far. Tropical Storm Hilda, which
formed far to the southwest and never came close to
the coast, is now almost to Hawaii and not posing
a threat there either. Tropical Storm Ignacio is
almost at our latitude and may be responsible for some of the high wave action we're seeing today, but is moving north and may bring rain to Baja before losing strength. Invest 93 is another system very far to the southwest which, even if it develops, will probably not affect this part of the coast.

The most interesting development is another Invest,
also called 93, which is now on the Atlantic side
(Caribbean, actually) and which may pass over into
the Eastern Pacific in the next few days. That one
bears watching - I can remember only one other EPAC storm that made it all the way across Central
America without dissipating over land. Computer models for this system show it possibly coming close to the coast and traversing north almost immediately.

Temperatures are really up there - I checked at 8 PM last night and it was 89F/31.7C - humidity was 69%. Still hot this morning and no rain on the horizon to cool us off. Gonna go find my book and crank up the fans. Courage, all-timers!
