Tropical Depression 19-E forms; headed for Baja Sur
Tropical Depression 19-E has formed in the eastern Pacific off the coast of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center does not expec t this storm to intensify much beyond a weak tropical storm even though sea surface temperatures are warm enough to favor further organization. Dry stable air and a slight easterly wind shear will keep 19E from strengthening beyond wind speeds in the low 40's mph.
19-E is heading north northwest and is expected to continue on this path until sometime Tueday when it turns more to the west northwest. In this timeframe, rain bands will be affecting the souther tip of Baja California. Rain bands are already coming ashore on Mexico's west coast and in the souther portions of Baja.
