This is the same system that tried to form in the Atlantic a few days ago but crashed into South America.

A few of the global models have been picking up on this developing within a few days, then intensifying into a hurricane as it turns towards Mexico close to a week from now:

http://moe.met.fsu.edu/cgi-bin/gfstc2.c ... =Animation
http://moe.met.fsu.edu/cgi-bin/cmctc2.c ... =Animation

The CMC is more aggressive on the intensity but seems to be shunting 93E into the EPAC storm graveyard, while the GFS is latching onto North American trough late in the forecast period that appears be pulling 93E (as a hurricane) into the Baja or mainland Mexico. If the GFS scenario pans out it could be another rainy week for Texas as well as the less important states on our borders.

The circulation appears to be elongated from NE-SW but overall, it's looking pretty healthy

It is trying to organize but I'm not sure if the circulation has completely reached the surface, quikscat doesn't show a well defined center but it looks much better than yesterday.

Code Red

TWOEP
TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1100 AM PDT THU OCT 15 2009

FOR THE EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC...EAST OF 140 DEGREES WEST LONGITUDE..

A LOW PRESSURE AREA LOCATED ABOUT 350 MILES SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF THE
GULF OF TEHUANTEPEC HAS BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED OVER THE PAST FEW
HOURS. IF CURRENT TRENDS CONTINUE...A TROPICAL DEPRESSION COULD
FORM LATER THIS AFTERNOON OR TONIGHT AS THE SYSTEM MOVES
WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 10 TO 15 MPH. THERE IS A HIGH CHANCE...
GREATER THAN 50 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL
CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.

ELSEWHERE...TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION IS NOT EXPECTED DURING THE
NEXT 48 HOURS.

It will be interesting to see if it gets bigger than Texas.

Again, a tricky forecast for soon to be Rick. This may well be another Hurricane Kenna 2002 type system.
