Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 2, 2014 11:47 a.m. Tropical Storm Norbert Forms Off Coast of Mexico Tropical Storm Norbert formed this morning and is located about 180 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Conditions are favorable for some strengthening over the next couple of days. Norbert is currently moving north-northeastward, but is expected to turn more northwestward during the next 24 hours. The track of this system is somewhat problematic as model guidance is split on exactly how to handle it. Given the proximity to the coast, a slight adjustment in the track will have larger ramifications for how much impact Norbert has. The most likely scenario is for the system to roughly parallel the coast of southwestern Mexico and approach the southern tip of Baja California on Thursday night into Friday. Most computer models then take the system more westward out to sea, but there is a chance the storm hooks to the right and into Baja California. In any case moisture from Norbert will enhance rainfall across the Baja and northwestern Mexico later this week, perhaps reaching the southwestern United States. The storm will also generate large waves with rough surf along the coast of Mexico. All interests in Baja California and along the southwestern coast of Mexico should monitor the development of this system over the next few days. Elsewhere across the basin, there are no imminent threats for tropical development. By Senior Meteorologist Brian Wimer
