Re: TS Odile: No rain threat?

Tropical Storm Odile's predicted path continues to get moved farther offshore from our coast with each new forecast. Now it looks like it will be about 200 miles offshore as it passes by us tomorrow. So it might not bring us much of anything. That's fine with me!

The Mexican government has moved the Tropical Storm Watch; it now extends from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes (this includes La Manzanilla.) I'm not sure why though.

Rain: Probably no heavy rains but there is always the chance of a random thunderstorm, directly caused by Odile or not. Like last night's lightning show.

Wind: There is still a 10%-20% chance of us getting tropical storm-force winds (>39 mph) this weekend. It will probably be gusty, breezy and maybe even windy occasionally.

Surf: still could be a threat. The forecast for Boca is down to 6 meters Saturday night and into Sunday. Less than that here at the more sheltered end of the bay. I don't now if the fishing boats are getting hauled off the beach yet, but the surf threat might be enough.
