Gulf Coast Hurricane Tracker

A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems. We are now expanding our view to tropical storms throughout the world intending to be a comprehensive global storm tracking resource.

Tropical Storm Ivo forms in the eastern Pacific

Tropical Storm Ivo just developed off the coast of Mexico this evening and currently has 45 MPH winds. Just this afternoon, Ivo was a tropical depression and was expected to dissipate before approaching the Baja California peninsula. Now the projections are for Ivo to remain as a storm and may threaten the southern tip of Baja California by early next week.

Conditions for the rest of this week are favorable for further development - low wind shear and warm surface water temperature. Later in the week the wind shear is expected to increase thereby weakening the storm. Whether this wind shear is enough to cause Ivo to dissipate, only time will tell.
