    Tropical Depression 20E has formed about 100 miles south-southeast of Acapulco, Mexico. The depression has a well defined circulation with multiple bands wrapping into it. The depression is heading north towards the coast, so doesn't have much time to strengthen. It should become a moderate tropical storm before landfall in a day or so however.

    20E has become Tropical Storm Trudy, with winds of 50kts. Despite proximity to land, Trudy appears to be rapidly intensifying. Shear is low, sea temps are around 30C, and therenis abundant moisture in the vicinity of Trudy. The storm has a well developed inner core with a quickly established central dense overcast and hints of an eye. If Trudy mananges to stay offshore today, it could become a hurricane, the 12th consecutive named storm to do so, continuing to smash previous records (it could be the 14th if you include Genevieve and Ana from the Central Pacific). The environment certainly supports it, but land interaction could be a limiting factor.

    A hurricane watch has been posted for areas near Acapulco, Mexico.

    Trudy moved inland soon after I posted. The circulation quickly dissipated over the mountainous terrain of Mexico. Heavy rains are continuing in the area, bringing flooding.
