Many of you have seen that “Tropical Depression 1-E” has formed in the Eastern Pacific off the coast of western Mexico. This storm will move northeasterly and inland over the weekend and will bring rains to the southwestern US and especially Texas.
We are only mentioning this today because some persons might see “Tropical Depression 1-E” on TV and wonder why we are not tracking the storm. The Tropical Storm Research Center in Gulf Shores, Alabama, does not routinely track Eastern Pacific storms UNLESS they cross over Mexico or Latin America and enter the Caribbean Sea or the Gulf of Mexico. Our tracking of Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf storms is our primary responsibility because they can ultimately affect the Gulf Coast of the United States where the majority of our viewers reside. Thank you.
