Tropical Storm Adrian Becomes Earliest Tropical Storm on Record For Eastern Pacific May 10, 2017

Tropical Storm Adrian breaks the record for the earliest named storm in the Eastern Pacific.

The official start to the Eastern Pacific hurricane season is May 15, with the earliest named storm occurring on May 14, 1990 – Tropical Storm Alma. Tropical Storm Adrian breaks the record for earliest named storm of the Eastern Pacific on record.

Official records for the Eastern Pacific began in 1966.

As of Wednesday evening, Adrian remains a minimal tropical storm with sustained winds of 40 mph.

Water temperatures off the Central America coast are running high with sea-surface temperatures in the upper 80s. Warm sea-surface temperatures combined with low wind shear are expected to provide a favorable environment for Tropical Storm Adrian to maintain its strength or to intensify into a minimal hurricane by Sunday.

Adrian isn’t expected to threaten any land until later this weekend or early next week, when  it’s expected to make a northward turn.

Southern Mexico and western Guatemala are most at risk to experience impacts from Adrian.
