The storm is forecast to intensify into a hurricane, but stay away from mainland Mexico. The forecast track for Tropical Storm Fabio, eventually Hurricane Fabio in the eastern Pacific through Thursday, July 5. It has been quite the month of June for the eastern Pacific basin. Five named storms have already formed, well ahead of the average dates of formation. The previously-named storm was Tropical Storm Emilia which formed 24 days earlier than the average "E" storm. Since Fabio is up next, this storm will be about 30 days earlier than average. The typical "F" named storm forms around July 30, according to the National Hurricane Center. This 'average date' is found from data 1971-2009 in the eastern Pacific. Meanwhile in the Atlantic Basin, things are quiet for now. No development is expected through Thursday, July 5. Part of that is due to an unusually-high amount of Saharan dust. Our Meteorologist Matt Monroe wrote extensively about this and you can read it by clicking/tapping here.
