Hurricane Season Has Started in the Pacific!

TROPICAL STORM ADRIAN
- Tropical Storm Adrian was upgraded from Tropical Depression #1-E at 8pm PDT Tuesday.
- As of 2pm PDT it was located about 420 miles to the SSW of Acapulco Mexico.
- Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 70 mph
- A tropical storm watch is in effect for the Mexican Coast from Acapulco westward to Punta San Telmo
- Swells are already affecting the southwest coast of Mexico
- Rip currents are also a threat
- Further strengthening is forecast and Adrian could become a hurricane overnight
- It is expected to peak Thursday night or Friday as a category 2 hurricane
- Tropical Storm Adrian is moving toward the NNW at 5 mph
- It is expected to maintain a northwesterly motion through tonight and turn back toward the west-northwest Thursday
- On its projected path Adrian should remain far enough off the Mexican coast to limit the impacts there
- Showers and thunderstorms should increase along the central Mexican coast later today through the end of the week
- Swell should begin increasing tomorrow and lasting into the weekend
- The strong winds and heaviest rain should remain well off shore

Re: Hurricane Season Has Started in the Pacific!

Mark:

Here it is from NOAA. This is strange b/c my insurance says that I can head south on Nov 1 but the season ends on Nov 30.

An average Eastern Pacific hurricane season produces 15 to 16 named storms, with eight to nine becoming hurricanes and four becoming major hurricanes. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 through Nov. 30, with peak activity from July through September.
