....currently producing a light sprinkle of rain. This weather seems to be the result of remnants of Hurricane Darby being drawn into the outflow of Hurricane Alex in the gulf. Not sure how much rain it will bring - maybe the 9 AM CNA report will help. |
From this morning's Tropical Weather Discussion (L.M. is at approx. 19N/105W):
THE REMNANT TROUGH OF FORMER TROPICAL CYCLONE DARBY EXTENDS FROM ABOUT 12N100W TO THE COAST OF MEXICO AT 16N97W...BUT IS EXPECTED TO SOON EXPAND NE INTO THE HURRICANE ALEX. THE OPEN PAC WATERS NW OF THIS TROUGH TO ALONG THE BAJA PENINSULA AT 24N AND W TO ABOUT 113W...ARE EXPERIENCING NW WINDS AT 15 TO 20 KT WITH SEAS TO 8 FT. SW WINDS 15 TO 20 KT CONTINUE WITHIN ABOUT 360 NM SE OF THE TROUGH. S SWELL...DRIVING SEAS TO 10 FT...COVER THE REMAINDER OF THE AREA S OF 15N BETWEEN 115W AND 80W. AS HURRICANE ALEX CONTINUES NW IN THE GULF OF MEXICO THE DARBY REMNANT TROUGH WILL SHIFT NW ALONG THE COAST OF MEXICO WITH WINDS AND SEAS ENHANCED WITHIN ABOUT 300 NM NW OF THE TROUGH. IN THE MEANTIME...THE PAC WATERS AFFECTED BY THE CROSS EQUATORIAL SOUTHERLY SWELLS IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE TO COVER THE ENTIRE AREA W OF 78W AND TO THE SE OF A LINE FROM 18N102W TO 04N140W BY THU NIGHT.
