In the tropics, we’re keeping an eye on several features. A wave just west of the Cabo Verde Islands could become our next tropical depression this weekend, but it will be encountering unfavorable conditions after that. Another wave, this one in the central Atlantic, has a medium chance of developing as it moves to the west-northwest. We’ll keep an eye on it.
In the Gulf, a low is expected to form early next week and move westward. It has a low chance of developing before reaching land, but it will bring heavy rain to portions of Mexico and the northern U.S. Gulf Coast.
And finally, Hurricane Hilary in the eastern Pacific is on track to threaten the southern California coast as a weakening hurricane or strong tropical storm on Sunday into Monday. Hurricane or tropical storm strikes are rare in California, but not unheard of.
