Hurricane Darby (05E) began as a large area of low pressure associated with a broad tropical wave off the coast of Mexico on June 21st.  During the evening of June 22, it was upgraded into a tropical depression, and had become a strong tropical storm by the afternoon of June 23.

Darby attained hurricane status early the next morning, while located about 235 mi (375 km) south-southwest of Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. Steadily intensifying, Darby attained major hurricane status on June 25.

However, its environment becoming increasingly hostile, it weakened back to a Category 2 hurricane the next day, and then a Category 1 by the afternoon of the 26th, the day this image was taken. By that evening, Darby had weakened to a tropical storm, and it continued weakening into the 27th; with its maximum winds dropping to minimal tropical storm intensity by the following morning.

Shortly thereafter, Darby was downgraded into a tropical depression, and later that day, decayed into a remnant low. Darby was absorbed into the Atlantic side of Tropical Storm Alex‘s circulation, where the remnant low was disrupted but resumed a large burst of convection.

Track of Hurricane 04E

Hurricane Celia (04E) (left) remains nearly stationary, its center located near latitude 15.2 north, longitude 124.2 west. The system is expected to remain nearly stationary over the next two days. This image shows Celia a few days ago, when the hurricane was located closer to the coast of Mexico.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/hr) with higher gusts. Weakening is forecast, and Celia is expected to become a tropical depression later today or tonight, and a remnant low by Tuesday.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).

Also visible (right) is Tropical Depression Darby (05E), whose center is currently located near 14.1N 99.6W at and is presently moving toward the East or 90 degrees at 8 knots. At the time this image was taken, the system was still at Tropical Storm strength. Current estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb, and maximum sustained winds are at 30 knots with gusts of up to 40 knots.
