Tropical Storm Helene Suddenly Forms In 'Last Words' Before Landfall

Tropical Storm Helene suddenly formed today, only miles from the coast of Mexico, in a way displaying its 'last words' before landfall.

Helene is composed of the remnants of Tropical Depression SEVEN, which had formed days ago but dissipated shortly after.

Helene is expected to move northeast and hit Mexico, before quickly dissipating into a post-tropical low after encountering land. This track has some feel of Tropical Storm Ernesto, which also hit the Yucatan Peninsula before making a second landfall in Mexico. Ernesto, however, proceeded southwest.
