CAT 3 Hurricane Darby!

Wow, Darby has unexpectedly intensified to a 105kt (120mph) CAT 3 hurricane! The advisory says that the winds have increased by 70 kts in 54 hours, with the latest burst of intensification having occured over sub - 27 degree water.
What a fascinating hurricane - it keeps coming up with surprises!

On top of all this, a new tropical depression has formed in the E. Pacific. Seems like it's making up for the lack of June activity.
