Tropical Depression Ten-E Forms in the East Pacific
The Eastern Pacific is starting to heat up once again after a slight lull in tropical cyclone activity.
Tropical Depression Ten-E formed early Thursday morning about 1400 miles to the west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja, California. The depression is expected to become a tropical storm by late Thursday or early Friday. If it indeed strengthens to a tropical storm, it would be given the name Fausto.
The good news is, TD Ten-E is expected to slowly drift west over the open ocean through the next five days, and is not currently a threat to land.
There are several other tropical waves across the Pacific however, which could also develop into tropical cyclones over the next several days. Stay with WeatherNation for the latest throughout hurricane season. This article will be updated as new data becomes available.
