Tropical Storm Odile To Become A Hurricane

Tropical Storm Odile is forecast to continue to develop in the very warm waters of the southern coast of Mexico through Saturday morning, moving at a very slow pace. Then on Saturday the system is forecast to kick it into high gear and cross the open waters between the mainland and the Baja peninsula. The entire time the system will remain over waters that are more than sufficient to allow the storm to continue to gather strength. The good news is the rapid forward movement often restricts the overall intensity development. Current forecasts call for Odile to arrive at the tip of the peninsula as a Category 2 Hurricane, but as good as path forecasts have become over the last 5 years, intensity forecasts, particularly 5 days out, remain a little elusive.

If it stays on this track we will receive no swell from this =(

Miriam Now A Category 3 Hurricane

Hurricane Miriam has become the fourth Major Hurricane of the 2012 Eastern pacific Hurricane Season achieving Category 3 intensity this morning with winds topping 120mph. Of more concern to Baja is the continued curve of the projected track of the storm. Current forecast tracks have the system making landfall near San Ignacio on the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur next weekend. Forecasts call for Miriam to be of tropical storm intensity at that time. Hurricane Miriam os about 410 miles south-southwest of Cabo San Lucas.

Tropical Cyclone Kristy Coming To Hurley Pro

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 3:51 PM MDT Tropical Depression 11E has spawned Tropical Storm Kristy off the southern coast of Mexico about 170 miles south-southwest of Cabo Corientes on the mainland or about 380 miles southeast of Cabo San Lucas. The system is forecast to remain a tropical storm through Friday. On Friday the storm is forecast to cross the 26°C thermo line and will begin to dissiapte.

Tropical Storm Kristy is located near 18.2N 106.9W and is moving 305° at 10kts. Central barometric pressure is estimated at 1005Mb and winds are 40kts with gusts to 50kts, making the system of mild tropical storm intensity. Forecasts call for TS Kristy to strengthen slowly and very little over the next 36hrs, remaining a tropical storm through Friday as it moves well southwest of the Baja peninsula. Early forecasts call for then TS Kristy to pose little threat to the Baja peninsula. Current tracks place the closest approach of the storm to Cabo San Lucas as about 200 miles on Friday morning. It is possible that the southern most extremes of the peninsula may see some spin-off rain from the system as it passes. Heightened surf of short period will occur along south and southwest facing beaches.
