Track of TD 14E

Early on September 25, the National Hurricane Center began monitoring an area of disturbed weather a few hundred miles south of Acapulco, Mexico. This system originally lacked a well-defined center and was broad in size, but gradually organized as it moved towards the north-northwest.

Satellite, ship, and buoy observations early on September 28 revealed that the low had become much better defined, and at 1500 UTC, the first advisory was issued on Tropical Storm Norman (14E), located at the time about 85 mi (135 km) east of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Norman weakened as it approached the coast of western Mexico and it became a tropical depression on September 29. The depression made landfall about just west of Topolobampo, but quickly emerged into the Gulf of California. The last of the deep convection associated with Norman dissipated early on September 29, and Norman became a post-tropical remnant low later that day.
