Tropical Cyclone 05E (Darby) 

Advisory number 15


Darby is moving toward the west near 17 mph (28 km/h). A westward or west-northwestward motion at a slightly slower forward speed is expected to continue through Friday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 110 mph (175 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional weakening is forecast, but Darby is expected to remain a hurricane through Wednesday night and a tropical storm through Thursday night. The system is forecast to become a post-tropical cyclone by late Friday.

Darby remains a small hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles (20 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km).


>>> Offshore of southern Mexico:

A broad area of low pressure located a few hundred miles south of the coasts of Guatemala and El Salvador, is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development during the next several days, and this system is likely to become a tropical depression toward the end of the week or into the weekend.

The disturbance is forecast to drift westward for the next day or two, then move west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph later this week while remaining offshore of the southern and southwestern coasts of Mexico.
