Tropical Depression EIGHT-E Forms

Tropical Depression EIGHT-E has formed just off the coast of Mexico. TD-EIGHT-E is composed of what was Hurricane Ernesto in the Atlantic, making this the first cross-oceanic system of the season.

The track for TD-EIGHT-E has been shown as a mainly westward track with a slight southward movement as well, before a sharp northwest turn occurs. During that time, strengthening into a hurricane appears likely, with tropical storm formation expected this evening.

An evening post will come out this evening. The TCF Model will NOT be run tonight, as it is not fully ready to forecast. You can see the page of the TCF model by clicking here.
