On Tuesday evening, Tropical Storm Hector formed in the Eastern Pacific. Winds reached up to 40 mph, just over the threshold for tropical storm status. The thing to take away with Hector is that it will NOT be impacting any land. It will head on its west northwest progression and really only impact shipping interests and the fishes. Hector is the 8th named storm of the season for the Eastern Pacific. Quite the active year so far. Where is hasn't been as active, well, that's the Atlantic basin. Still not looking at any tropical development within the next 5 days. Don't let that lull you into complacency though. We typically start to see activity in the Atlantic start to ramp up as we head further into August and into September and October.   For WeatherNation, Meteorologist Kate Mantych
