In our tropical kitchen this morning we have former himicane Eugene.  He is now a tropical storm around 500 miles west of Pt Eugenia.  He has entered colder waters and is now on the wane and expected to be plutoed to a tropical depression later today. 
Looking up at Mex one for the past several days just about every other car or truck has surf boards on top.  The word is out…surfs up on the Pacific. 

The other item of interest in the basin is tropical depression 6Echo. It is around 750 miles SW of the cape all the models have this storm moving due west over its life time.  It will probably become a tropical storm later today and perhaps on Friday hurricane Fernanda.  We’ll see. 

TROPICAL WAVES:  there are 5 waves in the tropical wave train this morning. 3 in the Atlantic, one in the Caribbean and one emerging from Central America this morning.
