Looks like the E. Pacific season is really starting to warm up:-
WOPZ41 KNHC 260800
SPECIAL TROPICAL DISTURBANCE STATEMENT
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1255 AM PDT MON JUL 26 2004
SATELLITE IMAGES INDICATE THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY...ASSOCIATED WITH
STRONG TROPICAL DISTURBANCE CENTERED ABOUT 765 MILES
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA...HAS BECOME
MUCH BETTER ORGANIZED THIS MORNING. IF THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO
DEVELOP NEAR THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER...THEN A TROPICAL
DEPRESSION WOULD LIKELY FORM LATER TODAY. THE DISTURBANCE IS MOVING
WESTWARD AT ABOUT 15 MPH.
In fact, NRL have put a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert on the system.
While the Atlantic remains starved of activity, at least the E. Pacific is giving us something to watch for a while.
