NASA peers into the rainfall of Eastern Pacific' Tropical Storm Aletta

NASA peers into the rainfall of Eastern Pacific' Tropical Storm Aletta

Accuweather has predicted the hurricane will track west-northwest away from the Mexico coastline into the weekend.

As of 9 a.m. MT on Friday, the center of Aletta was located about 815 kilometers (505 miles) southwest of Manzanillo in Mexico.

There's a low chance there will be tropical storm-force winds at some locations along the coast of Mexico through Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said.

Aletta formed off of the Southwestern coast of Mexico early this week, and became the first named Eastern Pacific tropical storm of the year on Wednesday.

Aletta will not directly impact any significant landmasses; however, the storm can still produce rough surf and risky rip currents along the western Mexican coast.

In more than half of all deaths in 27 states , the people had no known mental health condition when they ended their lives. The radio announcer, she said , encouraged listeners to look for warning signs in friends, neighbors, co-workers.

Forecasters said the hurricane may gain more intensity before a combination of increased wind shear and decreasing ocean heat will cause Aletta to break down.

It's too soon to determine whether this second system will eventually pose a direct threat to parts of Baja California next week.

The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 through November 30.

While it may seem odd for the Pacific's first storm to be so strong, meteorologist Jonathan Erdman discovered it's not all that uncommon. If this next disturbance becomes a Tropical Storm it will be named Bud.
