July 14th, 14:00 pst – Update: Two tropical Storms on the way

Now it’s a bit of a game of chicken: There are two tropical depressions active in the eastern Pacific (See the chart). Both of these systems are forecast to strengthen into Tropical Storms in the next 24 hours. The first one, TD5 will likely weaken after 28 hours, while the second one, TD6 is likely to continue strengthening to a moderate or strong Tropical Storm while moving slightly north of due west. So now, does anyone have the guts to go South and “catch a little lift from the big ones”? This is going to be one interesting race!
