As of 2 p.m. PDT (2100 UTC) May 16, Tropical Storm Aletta (01E), the first storm of the 2012 Pacific Hurricane Season, is located within 30 nautical miles of 11.4°N 113.5°W, about 830 mi (1335 km) south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California.

Maximum sustained winds are 35 knots (40 mph, 65 km/h), with stronger gusts. Minimum central pressure is 1004 mbar (hPa; 29.65 InHg), and the system is moving west at 8 kt (9 mph, 15 km/h). Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center of Aletta.

Visible to the east of Aletta in the full images is a broad low pressure area located about 500 miles south of Acapulco, Mexico. It has changed little over the past several hours, although environmental conditions are generally conducive for slow development of this system during the next few days. This system has a medium chance (30 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves slowly to the northwest.

On May 12, the NHC reported that a tropical disturbance formed, about 550 miles south-southwest of Acapulco, Mexico. The storm quickly moved northwest before stalling, and then began to strengthen rapidly.

Early on May 14, the tropical disturbance intensified into a tropical depression, becoming the first storm of the season. Tropical Depression One-E formed one day before the official start of the 2012 Pacific hurricane season. This marks the first time that a tropical cyclone has formed before the official start of hurricane season, in the East Pacific basin since 1996, when Tropical Storm One-E formed on May 13, 1996.

Late on May 14, the storm intensified into Tropical Storm Aletta, with 40 mph (65 km/h) 1-minute sustained winds. As of 8 p.m. PDT (0300 UTC) May 15, Tropical Storm Aletta is located within 30 nautical miles of 10.5°N 108.5°W, about 650 mi (1045 km) south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds are 35 knots (40 mph, 65 km/h), with stronger gusts. Minimum central pressure is 1004 mbar (hPa; 29.65 InHg), and the system is moving west at 10 kt (12 mph, 19 km/h).

Track of TC 01E

Hurricane Adrian is moving toward the west-northwest near 9 mph (15 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue for the next 48 hours.

Maximum sustained winds are near 140 mph (220 km/h) with higher gusts. Adrian is a category four hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. Slight strengthening is possible early Friday, with gradual weakening forecast to begin by Friday night and continuing into Saturday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km). Estimated minimum central pressure is 946 mb (27.94 inches).

Hazards affecting land include high surf: large swells generated by Adrian will continue to affect a
portion of the southwestern coast of Mexico today through at least early this weekend. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip currents.

Tropical Depression 01E is heading north and is expected to cross the Mexican coast as a tropical storm late Friday. After making landfall, the system is forecast to dissipate quickly.

The storm is expected to bring maximum sustained winds of around 64 km/h (40 mph) to the region, though wind gusts in the area may be considerably higher.

A tropical storm watch is in effect for the Pacific coast of mainland Mexico from Topolobampo southward to El Roblito, and for Las Islas Marias.
