In the tropics, Tropical Depression # 13 is now tropical Storm Julia and it’s expected to become a hurricane soon.  At 5 am, Julia was located near 12.7 North, 78.0 West, about 235 miles east-southeast of Isla de Providencia, Colombia.  Maximum sustained winds were 60 miles per hour, and Julia was moving west at 18 miles per hour.  There are hurricane warnings for Colombia’s San Andres, Santa Catalina, and Providencia islands and for much of the coast of Nicaragua.  Heavy rains causing mudslides will be a major hazard in much of Central America as Julia makes landfall Saturday night.
